What To Do In Vancouver This November


November is Vancouver is much like November in the rest of Canada, cooling temperatures with a chance of snow. Of course their snow is a lot less than everywhere else in the country, and the weather is milder. And you will probably see much more rain. Still, even with the cooling temperatures, there is still plenty to do to get you out of the house. Here are some highlights.

Celebrate Our Arctic at Vancouver Aquarium started in October, but it runs until the 22nd of November. The exhibition allows you to get a better understanding of the land to the north, including meeting an Arctic Bird, watch the 4-D movie Frozen Planet about polar bears and a tiny creature that impacts almost all animals in the Antarctic, or take a narrated tour of some the exhibits to get a better understanding of the north and the animals that live there.

Cirque du Soleil returned to Vancouver on October 29  and stick around until December 27. This year the show is called Kooza, which tells the story of a loner named The Innocent who is searching for his place in the world.  In a way it’s a return to the origin of Cirque du Soliel, in that it brings back a combination of acrobatic performances with the art of clowning.

Dance in Vancouver turns 10 this year, and it runs from Wednesday November 18th to the 22nd. Come join in the cities celebration of contemporary dance at the Scotiabank Dance Centre, with several shows and events planned, starring some of British Columbia’s most exciting companies.

Also running from November 19th to the 22nd is the 19th Annual Eastside Culture Crawl. This 4 day event is Vancouver’s visual arts, design and crafts festival. Over 20,000 people will visit artists in their studios in Vancouver, and not only will they be able to watch the artists plying their creative juices, but they will be able to buy art right on the spot.

And if theatre is more your thing, you can catch the wonderful play Once from November 17th – November 22nd at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. This charming love story is about an Irishman on the verge of quitting who meets the love of his life who inspires him to keep playing music.
