Vancouver’s Granville Island is gearing up for their 12th annual event that celebrates all things winter, taking place February 17-19 this year.
The Winterruption Festival is a fun mix of culture and arts with live music, theatre, dance and street performance, plus art exhibits, film, crafts, family activities and, of course, fabulous food.
The festival has a new hub this year, called The Forge. Historically the former home of Canada Chain and Forge (a supply company from the location’s more industrial beginnings), we now know it as the big covered parking lot under the bridge.
Food-centric events we are super stoked about? The Winterruption Donut Spectacular at Lee’s Donuts, plus maple syrup made into treats on snow, and the best soul-warming soups ever at Rebel Kitchen. Or sign up for a Granville Island Market Tour, or The Liberty Distillery Tour to get an insiders edge and peek behind the scenes. Need to warm up? Sip some traditional Glühwein at the Forge.
Don’t miss out on the fun! For the full schedule of Winterruption events, visit: winterruption.com.
