Autumn Shift Festival and 4th Annual Smoking Sausage BBQ Competition Cook-Off
Don’t miss the last summer street party happening this Sunday in the Mount Pleasant ‘hood on Main Street. Join thousands of others at this free event featuring an array of vendors, food specials, talented musicians and performers on three stages. Now in its fifth year, the Autumn Shift Festival and fourth Annual Smoking Sausage BBQ Competition Cook-Off is not to be missed – so go!
Meet on Main
While in the area, you might want to check out the latest little culinary hot spot to open on Main Street: Meet on Main. After a few false starts due to final tweaks, permits and what have you, doors are officially open and they’re excited to welcome guests to this humble and hip abode. They’ve got plenty of veg-friendly options (the menu is pretty heavy on them) but meander into the meat side with four different styles of burgers to choose from, cocktails, craft beer and more.
The Colour Run
This weekend, be sure to grab your self a spot for the ‘Happiest 5k on the Planet’ as the Colour Run comes to Vancouver. This fun, all-ages paint race celebrates healthiness, happiness, and individuality and is one of the largest community-driven fun runs in North America. Sign up with friends and support Kidsport Vancouver while you get messy and sweaty.
Best Catch Sustainable Seafood Festival
Don’t miss the third annual Best Catch Sustainable Seafood Festival this Sunday, September 14th. Hosted by the Gulf of Georgia Cannery, it’s a free community event that helps promote the value of making ocean-friendly seafood choices (sounds good to us!) and features live cooking demonstrations, food tastings, live music, and more.
