November may seem like a dreary, wet month, but there are some wonderful events happening in Kitsilano over the next several weeks. Check out our list below for 4 excellent November events in Kitsilano. And don’t forget about daylight savings time ending (which means you gain an extra hour) on Sunday, November 2nd – an added perk for the month.
4 Excellent November Events in Kitsilano
1. CRAFT Screening and Tasting Event – Wednesday, November 5, 6:30-9:30pm
Kitsilano’s notable Thai restaurant, Maenam, alongside Glassbender Brewing, are presenting a screening of the beer documentary, CRAFT. During this event, Maenam will be the first restaurant to pour a bottle-conditioned table saison Glassbender Farmhouse Ale produced by Vancouver’s Postmark Brewing in Railtown. Each guest will receive their own bottle of the Farmhouse Ale, plus some fabulous Maenam beer snacks to devour while watching the film.
2. MOV Artware: Northwest Coast Designs and Everyday Objects – Thursday, November 6, 7pm
Join exhibition curator and anthropologist Solen Roth and artist Shain Jackson at the Museum of Vancouver for a conversation around Aboriginal-themed commercial products developed by Vancouver-based artists. The objects selected highlight shifts in relationships between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples, as illustrated in the design of the objects themselves and in the exchanges and practices to which they give rise.
3. Kitsilano Neighbourhood House Reopening Party – Saturday, November 15, 10am-3pm
Join your neighbours, friends, and the staff and volunteers from the Kitsilano Neighbourhood House as they welcome everyone back after a 3-year, $20 million renovation.
