Enjoy What Kitsilano has to Offer!
People choose to live in beautiful Kitsilano for the community, the beauty, the beach, and fun events held in the neighbourhood. A fun & traditional Kitsilano event starts soon – The Kitsilano Showboat! It’s a great event where can you take your family to enjoy free shows with other Kits residents during the warm summer evenings. Located at Vancouver’s Kitsilano Beach Park, beside Kitsilano Pool, Showboat treats fans to outdoor performances running 7-9 pm every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from June 24 to August 17, 2013. At the Kitsilano Showboat, the performers – representing all corners of the world – treat guests to dance shows, live bands and everything in between.
This season marks the 78th anniversary of live outdoor entertainment at the Showboat. It promises to be an exciting season full of celebration and special appearances, including a special performance by the Kitsilano Boys Band Alumni on Saturday, July 13 with guest conductor Dal Richards.
Originally started as a way to keep unemployed entertainers performing in the 1930’s, Showboat has become a world-famous Vancouver tradition. While there, remember to get a souvenir program book that profiles performers, recognizes Showboat supporters and gives you a chance to enter the nightly prize draw.
