What are some things to do this autumn 2019 in Vancouver?

The leaves are changing, the sweaters are coming out of storage, and people are starting to flavour everything with pumpkin spice. Fall is in the air, and you’re looking for fun things to do in Vancouver. 

We’ve got you covered.

Here are…

 

The 10 Things To Do This Autumn 2019 in Vancouver…

 

#1. Ride the “Ghost Train” in Stanley Park

Every year around Halloween, the Stanley Park transforms into a spooky theme park, full of crafts, movies, exhibits, and a pumpkin patch. It is a perfect activity to do with the kids. This year’s theme? Alice in Nightmareland. Get your tickets today.

 

#2. Go see a movie. Vancouver has great independent films.

Go to the Rio Theatre on 1660 East Broadway this autumn to see any number of award-winning short films or independent films. On September 30th, for example, go check out the “grindhouse psychodrama” Killer Queen. You could also attend the Vancouver International Film Festival, which starts this Thursday, 9/26.

 

#3. Attend a VIP Revolucion Party 

Check out one of Revolucion’s VIP Parties. Every once in awhile, Revolucion hosts parties, full of whiskey and cigar tasting, for our best customers – but if you’re just hearing about Revolucion, you can learn more about this event by signing up for the email list.

The VIP Party will be held on October 27th, 2019; contact us to learn more).

 

 

#4. Get a craft beer in Olympic Village (or just about anywhere)

Autumn in general (and October in particular) is a great time to throw back a beer. There’s a lively and growing craft beer scene in Vancouver, so once you get off work, find a brewery near you and invest a few bucks in a freshly brewed pint. You won’t be disappointed.


 

#5. Experience all that fall has to offer at the VanDusen Botanical Garden

This October, for example, the VanDusen Botanical Garden has the following in bloom: Eastern North American and Gingko trees, Autumn Crocus, Fatsia, Rudbeckia, Asters, and Hydrangeas. Check it out while you still can.

 

#6. Visit Maplewood Farm

Maplewood Farm is a great attraction in Vancouver, and that’s even truer in the fall. At Maplewood, there are donkeys, sheep, rabbits, cows, pigs, and their website even features a live goat cam. This Autumn 2019, go pet some animals.

 

#7. The Wizard’s Cauldron Bar 

Vancouver Muggles should prepare themselves because a 19+ Harry Potter-themed experience is coming to Vancouver. The Wizard’s Cauldron Bar is popping up in Vancouver this fall, and it will offer wizards and witches an immersive 90-minute boozy Hogwarts potion class.

Each ticket will include a robe and wand (for the duration of the class) on entry, a hot mead and alcoholic potion, and a 90-minute potion session. There will also be a cash bar for more drinks and food available for purchase on-site. Learn more.

 

#8. Visit the Museum of Anthropology

If it gets too cold outside this autumn, it might be best to find some indoor activities. Right now, the Museum of Anthropology has a show called, “Shadows, Strings, and Other Things,” all about the “enchanting theatre of puppets.” Even if you’ve visited the Museum of Anthropology before, there’s always something new going on. Maybe, when you’re looking for things to do this autumn 2019 in Vancouver, you should think about stopping into the Museum of Anthropology. You really can’t go wrong.
