There's a lush secret garden popping up in Vancouver this summer

Aug 7 2019, 2:48 pm

Summer in Vancouver calls for ‘insta-worthy’ outdoor events curated with thoughtful experiences in mind. If you’ve never been to one, we know just the spot.

On Friday, August 9, you’ll hear the sweet sounds of live music being played from a secret oasis in the sky, and you’ll be intrigued to seek out the source of this magical mystery. Okay, we’ll reveal the location; but remember, it’s literally an elevated affair.

That’s right, the third-floor patio of The Westin Grand will be transforming into the Growers Secret Garden pop-up, from 12-6pm the event will be free and open to the public (19+).

With wooden picnic tables, blankets, and pillows, you’ll have plenty of space to soak up the atmosphere with friends. (And take some unforgettable pictures in an IG-friendly oasis with a flower wall and pop-up flower boutique, obviously.)

On top of all those good vibes, you’ll also get to enjoy a sample of the brand new Growers Rosé Cider at the bar while you’re there (limited to one per guest). And don’t forget to hit up the pop-up food stands with treats like artisanal popsicles (as long as supplies last).

Dance to live music which will be played throughout the duration of the event, and try your luck at Jenga, and lawn games like the always-enjoyable bean bag toss. There will also be a photographer onsite taking and printing out photos at a photo booth, so you’ll have every opportunity to (hashtag) make memories.

Upgrade your secret garden experience when you try Growers Canadian-made rosé cider with a splash of wine. It’s got a perfectly refreshing balance and crisp finish, with sweet notes of apple blossom.

Made with 100% Canadian apples, Growers Rosé Cider is the summer drink you won’t feel guilty about enjoying this season, especially in the setting of the Growers Secret Garden pop-up.

There’s nowhere else in the city that you can come in off the street to enjoy a picturesque lounge setting this summer, but you can do it at Vancouver’s Growers Secret Garden.

Remember to bring your ID because the event is strictly 19+, and RSVP via the Facebook event page.

See you on the patio!
