Welcome to yoyomama’s weekend guide! Your go-to list of family friendly fun things to do with kids in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. It’s also easy to get these event listings in our handy new app, OnTheGoKids, which takes our weekend guide and makes it mobile!
Attention nature lovers! Explore the waters at Stream Dream; get Stumped in Stanley Park; watch the Perseid Meteor Shower; learn fun animal facts about Nature That Floats, Flies, and Soars; or make impressions of plants and mushroom at f VanDusen Botanical Gardens. If animals are more your thing, the Chilliwack Fair has reptiles and livestock to see, plus, you can meet a real Alpaca at the Pic-Knit, or bring Fido to the Animal Expo. Or if you’re craving some good eats, tantalize your taste buds at the Columbia StrEAT Food Truck Fest, eat blueberry pancakes at the Cloverdale Blueberry Festival, or taste some local fare at the Langley Eats Local event. And if you’re still looking for fun stuff to do, watch the stunt airplanes at the Abbotsford Airshow, relax to some tunes at the Burnaby Blues + Roots Festival, or get an eyeful at the Harmony Arts Festival. With fun events like these, summer is going to fly by even faster than we thought!
You’ll find all these events and more in our interactive events calendar.
And we wanted to remind you to always call or visit the website for event info before you head out just in case any changes have been made since we posted it. And of course, have fun!
