SummerFest 2018 at Lonsdale Quay Market
Celebrate all summer long with Lonsdale Quay Market at SummerFest. Every Wednesday through Sunday from June 29 to September 2, experience free activities for the whole family at the Market. Most events take place on the Waterfront Plaza, overlooking the picturesque view of Vancouver’s skyline.
A few changes to the SummerFest lineup this year include: the addition of the Kids Extravaganza. Activities include a petting zoo, kite performances, musical shows and appearances by Moana, Spiderman and Tinkerbell. This year will also see the return of salsa dancing on Friday nights. The North Vancouver Centre will partner with lululemon for “Pier Sweat Wednesdays” next door at the Burrard Dry Dock and various fitness studios, including Eastwood Cycle, Barre Fitness, and Salted Cycle for our “Turnt Up Thursdays”.
The festival experience will feature live performances on select Saturdays throughout the summer and host buskers every Sunday. A few noteworthy performances to look out for include: country band The Heels, world renowned Tina Turner tribute artist Luisa Marshall, internationally recognized Elvis impersonator Steve Elliott, and upbeat children’s group Will’s Jams.
Once again, the free ‘Outdoor Movie’ event will cap off the summer. On Sept. 1, the night starts with Finding Dory at 8 p.m. and is followed by The Goonies at 10 p.m.
All proceeds of SummerFest go to Lions Gate Hospital Foundation. The foundation raises money for publicly funded healthcare facilities and assisting with programs across the North Shore.
