Granville Showcase this weekend: Music, Food, Entertainment / by Granville Street

Join us on Saturday, July 25th as we celebrate the completion of Canada Line construction on Granville Street downtown!

Featuring fashion shows, dance and live music performances on the main stage, located in the newly redesigned 700 block on Granville Street, be sure to check out one of the best outdoor parties this summer. Granville Street businesses will be celebrating by offering great deals, product sampling, free giveaways and entertaining activities for all.

Keep the party going until 4 in the morning as The Cellar Nightclub will be offering drink features, music and much more as they host the Official After Party! (Dress code: casual to classy, it’s up to you).

PLUS - be one of the first to see inside the new Vancouver City Centre Canada Line station as InTransitBC hosts a Public Open House where one of the new trains will be parked for viewing (enter by Sears on Granville).
