“Nothing beats summer long weekends, and when Canada Day lands on a Friday, the stage is set for the ultimate Canadian summer long weekend,” organizers said in a release. “This year, Shipyards Live is ready to mark Canada’s 155th birthday with a full day of live music and fun for the entire family.”
The party kicks off at 12 noon with live music on two stages, including fan-favourite performers like The Shenanigans, Fully Loaded, and 5 Star Motel.
Tragically Hip tribute band Roadside Attraction will perform classics from the beloved Canadian legends, and North Vancouver’s own Mom Bop brings its kid pop dance moves to the festivities.
An artisan vendor market will have lots of handmade items and products for sale, and there will be face painting for the children. And if the young ones are feeling warm from having too much fun, they can cool off in the Shipyards waterpark.
It wouldn’t be a party without delicious eats and drinks, so make sure to save room for the numerous food trucks on-site as well as the Patio Beer Garden presented by Stanley Park Brewing.
The beer garden is open from 12 to 10 pm with happy hour pricing available from 12 to 3 pm. Now that’s a deal you’ll want to arrive early for.
Of course, you’ll want to stay late too as Shipyards Live is hosting a retro video dance party in the Pipe Shop from 5 to 10 pm. Hit the floor and dance all evening to classics you can’t believe you remember all the words to.
