Get out your calendars, Vancouver – we’re saying goodbye to February with a heaping list of must-see events coming to town in March. From acclaimed Broadway smash hits, the return of a renowned sports spectacle and just shy of a dozen Canucks home games on tap, you’ll want to write all this down.
Come From Away – March 5-10 at Queen Elizabeth Theatre
It’s a Tony Award winning, all-Canadian smash hit on Broadway since it opened to rave reviews in March 2017, and now it’s in Vancouver next week – Come From Away is the story of how the tiny town of Gander, Newfoundland opened its doors and hearts to thousands of airline passengers stranded there in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Written by the Canadian husband-and-wife team of David Hein and Irene Sankoff, the musical won a Tony Award for Best Direction in 2017 and has garnered rave reviews and press.
HSBC Canada Sevens – March 9-10 at BC Place
Since making their debut in Vancouver in 2016, the HSBC Canada Sevens have become renowned as a can’t-miss sports spectacle fueled by crazy fan costumes, a party atmosphere and spectator-friendly rugby action. Grab your onesie and a group of friends and head over to BC Place on March 9-10 to take part in this beloved sports experience.
