It may be grey and rainy, but the next few months are full of fun events in and around our Kitsilano neighbourhood. Here are just a few of the events that you can look forward to in January, February, and March.
From January 19th till February 4th, Tourism Vancouver’s Dine Out Vancouver Festival is back for its 16th year. Over 300 restaurants will be participating with specially priced multi-course dinners at $20, $30, and $40. Many of these restaurants will also offer discounted lunch menus. The full list of restaurants (with loads of them in Kitsilano) will be available for reservations on January 11th.
From January 20th till February 14th, the 8th annual Hot Chocolate Festival returns to Vancouver to warm and sweeten us all up.
