Celtic music, a masquerade ball, a winter farmers market, and a brick party are what’s on this weekend in and around Kitsilano.
Friday, November 3rd
Tonight at 7pm at the St. James Hall on West 10th Avenue, The Rogue Folk Club presents A Cape Breton Night with Beolach. This band is made up of Cape Breton‘s most respected musicians. Performing a lively mix of Cape Breton, Scottish, and Irish tunes, the band features Mairi Rankin (fiddle, step-dance), Wendy MacIsaac (fiddle, piano, step-dance), Mac Morin (piano, accordion, step-dance), and Matt MacIsaac (Highland pipes, whistles, guitar and banjo). Tickets are $28. See The Rogue Folk Club website for more details.
There are also still tickets available for the multi-sensory Costume Ball show at Wayne Manor at the Brock House on Point Grey Road. The century-old mansion will be transformed into a lushly designed evocation of Gotham City for the full moon evening. The show offers a unique theatrical experience for audience members as they explore the rooms in order to discover hidden scenes, encounter performers one-on-one, unearth clues that illuminate a shrouded history, meet in the ballroom for a grand finale, and dance into the evening at the completion of the theatrical portion of the night. Dinner and drinks are included in the remaining $150 tickets.
Saturday, November 4th
It’s opening day for the Nat Bailey Stadium Winter Market today, from 10am till 2pm. This winter farmers market will be on Saturdays until April 2018. Continue getting those fresh salad greens here, plus loads of other fall produce including apples, squash, and potatoes. And warm up with something from the food trucks on site. We like the Aussie Pie Guy, the Chili Tank, and the Schnitzel Shack.
Sunday, November 5th
Something for the kiddos today, from 12pm till 3pm at the Kids Market on Granville Island. It’s a Lego Make and Take event. Kids (and probably adults, too), can assemble their own Ninjago figure from the latest franchise Lego movie. And there’s a chance to win a Lego prize pack from Kaboodles. Oh, and Daylight Savings Time ends tonight at 2am so set those non-wifi-enabled clocks back one hour!
