This weekend isn’t all about Easter Bunnies and chocolate eggs. Earth Day is coming up, and there are tons of events celebrating our home planet (and more to come next week!) How about a parade down Commercial Drive, or fun earthy science at Science World? It’s also World Circus Day, and time for Vancouver Circus School’s annual spring show. Professor Banjo is in town for a family concert; the Vaisakhi parade is taking over the streets in Surrey; and the Mommies N Munchkins fair is on in Langley. There are a few great outdoor events as well, from an egg hunt in Stanley Park to cleaning the parks and streets in Surrey. To find the Easter Bunny, check our Easter event listings – we’ve added a few new ones.
The Easter Bunny is preparing chocolate eggs and filling up his baskets for the Big Day. The coming weekend is full of fun Easter happenings across the GTA from Easter egg hunts to crafts and concerts, and we’ve put them together in one convenient list. So don your bonnets, grab your baskets, and head over to one (or many) of these fun Easter events. It’s an eggciting season, so have fun, but take it easy on the chocolate!
Cherry blossoms are peaking, and spring is in the air! Visit Loutet Farm or the Nikkei Cultural Centre for spring festivals, or head over to South Vancouver for the Vaisakhi Parade. River Market offers spring cleaning for your mind, body and soul, and various swap meets give you a chance to clear out the closets! The Fraser Valley Food Truck Festival is happening in Chilliwack; there’s a chocolate workshop at the Surrey Museum; and the Great Canadian Craft Fair welcomes you to Cloverdale. The weather is fine, so why not head outdoors? Learn about otters and beavers, frogs or nature photography. If that’s not enough, check out our eggciting Easter Events Guide for egg hunts, Easter trains, the Easter Bunny and more!

Now it’s really time to celebrate spring! Join the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival, and discover Japanese traditions and customs at Sakura Days.

You can also discover musical bicycles with ArtStarts or build LEGO trains at the Surrey Museum. And remember to unplug all the devices and turn off the lights on Sunday night for Earth Hour. Use this time to connect with the kids, explore the ancient art of conservation, and maybe even play a board game by candle light together.
Spring is here! The days are getting longer, and the weather is warmer. So it’s time for some outdoor activities. Check out the Family Nature Festival in Chilliwack; learn about outdoor navigation in Lynn Valley, or walk the twilight trails during Night Quest in Pacific Spirit Park. If spring showers surprise, head indoors to Playdome or visit the Springtastic Fair in Cloverdale for some carnival fun. Or check out one of the other fun events, including a magic show, opera, a Vancouver Symphony Orchestra’s concert, movies, crafts, and many other fun things for the whole family.
The pride our kids feel when they create something themselves is like a booster shot of self-confidence. We’ve seen it, and we want to see more. We’re just not so sure we’d like to teach our kids about Pollock-style splatter painting in our dining room.
