Saturday, February 7: Vanier Park hosts family-friendly, cultural discovery event

Vancouverites are invited to spend the day exploring the six cultural institutions of Vanier Park, at the fourth annual Winter Wander, presented by Port Metro Vancouver.

Vanier Park is home to Vancouver Maritime Museum, Museum of Vancouver, H.R. MacMillan Space Centre, Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival, Vancouver Academy of Music, and City of Vancouver Archives. Each year, the group teams up for a one-day event where locals and their families can enjoy a taste of what Vanier Park’s cultural institutions have to offer.

For only $5.00, youth, seniors and adults receive admission to all venues, while kids five and younger can visit for free.

In addition to all the exhibitions, there will be some extra special opportunities to enjoy.

There will be food trucks on site from Triple-O's and Big Red's Poutine, and ventriloquist Kellie Haines will be performing her show at MOV (11:30am and 1:00pm),

Expert face painter Allyson Grant from Gossamer Designs will be adding colour the the festivities, and We Love Van will be providing complimentary water and coffee. Make sure to enter the prize draws too!

We are grateful for the continued generosity of Port Metro Vancouver, whose support will ensure that this year’s event is not to be missed. We would also like to thank our event sponsors City and LG104.3 for spreading the word.
