Beginning June 30, head down to Ship Point and check out A Flavour of Canada, a busy food court full of the city’s best food trucks and culinary experts.

While you’re there, visit The Zone Stage, where the likes of Rococode, Stef Lang and Woodsmen will provide musical entertainment into the evening.

On Canada Day, head to the B.C. legislature front lawn for performances throughout the day and into the evening, featuring JUNO-nominated Hey Ocean!, The Kerplunks, Acres of Lions and Kathryn Calder.
