Oh Canada, jazz style. After the successful transformation of downtown’s North Georgia Plaza last weekend, the TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival returns with one final musical bang, this sunny long weekend.
Daily Hive has your last-minute guide to free concerts this weekend. On Saturday July 1, head on over to Granville Island for four stages of all-day fun.
Then, for one last hurrah on Sunday July 2, set your blankets down in Yaletown for some great bands between two alternating stages.
Celebrate Canada Day on July 1 with all-day free outdoor concerts, along with the rest of the island’s usual festivities. From the Official Canada Day Ceremony to Canadian-themed Improv to the Maple Leaf Mural, the entire island is in on the fun. You can even indulge in a special Canada Day treat at the ever-popular Lee’s Donuts.
