Kitsilano Summer Activities: Have you been to Bard on the Beach yet this year? A Midsummer Night’s Dream was as entertaining as it was inspiring. The acting was top notch, the use of music and props were fantastic and watching the sun go down behind the stage is incredible. If you haven’t yet been for a show this year, I highly recommend it. There are only a few weeks left to catch a 75th Anniversary Kitsilano Showboat Program. Running until August 16th, this classic Kitsilano summer activity offers a mix of dance and music at Kits Beach. With 75 years of practice, the show shouldn’t fail to entertain.

Kitsilano Restaurant Recommendation: The Naam. When was the last time you went to the Naam? Still unique. Still fresh. Still delicious and the cold beers are still flowing. It’s a fantastic spot to enjoy some comfort food after a few hours on the beach.
