Can't Miss: 5 events happening in Vancouver this long weekend: June 30 to July 3

A special long weekend events list

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Three days really doesn’t feel all that long for a long weekend. Four days would feel long, hell, even five would be nice. 

      Three days off should be a normal, average length weekend. One day for fun, one day for chores, one day for rest. The trifecta. 

      Perhaps this Canada Day “long” weekend is the perfect time for the workers of the world to unite in a rousing call for a four day work week. Down with colonial capitalism! Down with the bourgeoisie! Viva la revolución! 

      No? Too hungover? Already have brunch plans? Okay, no worries. We’ve got some other events you can spend your weekend checking out instead:
