Please join us on October 3 at Tap & Barrel in Olympic Village for an evening of live opera and musical entertainment, a silent auction and an amazing view of Vancouver.
Opera & Beer is becoming our yearly signature celebration, which benefits City Opera Vancouver’s annual productions.

City Opera’s upcoming production is Missing. The opera addresses the national crisis and devastation of Canada’s missing and murdered aboriginal women and girls. It runs November 3-11, 2017 at the York Theatre. Tickets are on sale now and available here: https://thecultch.com/events/missing/

Don’t know about Opera? Not to worry, come and mingle in a relaxed and fun environment and get to know some of Vancouver’s local opera singers.

What to wear? Always a question that comes up when attending the opera! This is a relaxed event: let your hair down and leave the tux at home. Wear what you feel at ease in.

Welcome to the inaugural craft beer week on Vancouver’s North Shore! This October 6-13, we toast the North Shore’s legendary past in brewing and our bright future with a week of celebrations.

The North Shore has a rich history of craft brewing having been home to Canada’s first ever microbrewery – Horseshoe Bay Brewery in 1982. Now, we play host to five (soon to be seven!) craft breweries leading the way in tasty beers.

Try special casks, attend fun events, and learn more about North Shore beers while collecting stamps on our North Shore Ale Trail Passport.
