Make It Vancouver (Kelly’s Pick) - Craft Fair

April 19-21 | Varies by day | Croatian Cultural Centre | $5


This ain’t your Grandma’s craft fair.


Over 140 Canadian indie crafters + designers in one room combined with live music, delicious food, wobbly pops, nice friendly folks and an awesome vibe. Sounds like a perfect way to spend a potentially rainy afternoon. Trust me, there’s something for everyone at Make It Vancouver; I’d be surprised if you left empty-handed.


Kits Beach Clean Up 2013 (Miraj’s pick) - Community/Conservation

April 20 |11 AM - 2 PM | Kits beach | Free/By donation


What are you doing this Earth Day weekend? Join Surfrider Vancouver and SPEC Land and Water for a beach cleanup and celebration at Kits Beach! Back for another year, the beach cleanup is a follow up from last year when over 400 pounds of garbage was collected.

The cleanup crew will meet in front of The Boathouse at 10:30am. Join the crew and help keep our waters and beaches clean while you enter the Passport Challenge to win prizes! Afterwards there would be a post cleanup celebration at 2pm. Thanks Matt!
