Cultural Events in Vancouver – Let Me Count the Types

Keeping track of the different cultural options in Vancouver is a full-time job. And it’s easy to forget all the available options.

Here’s a brief overview of some different things you can do and attend, all of which have cheap or free options.

  • Live theatre (plays, staged readings, cold readings)
  • Standup comedy
  • Improv comedy
  • Classical music concerts
  • Other music concerts
  • Dance events
  • Discussion forums
  • Film screenings
  • Literary readings
  • Poetry slams
  • Story slams
  • Variety shows
  • Participatory literary events (e.g., Word Whips)
  • Meetup groups (e.g., related to travel, foreign languages, films)
  • Lectures (e.g., the Parlitalia series offered by the Istituto Italiano Cultura)
  • Singing groups (and choirs)
  • Culinary/alcoholic events
  • Unconferences
  • Festivals
  • Meeting up with friends can be a cultural event too!

Any others I’ve forgotten?
