The Robson Street Business Association (RSBA) is teaming up with the West End Business Improvement Association (WEBIA) to celebrate Canada Day 150 on Robson Street.
The sidewalks from Burrard to Denman Street will be filled with music, entertainment, treats, giveaways, and business promotions.
Additionally, the south side of Bute, Jervis and Cardero Streets will be closed to vehicle traffic to make way for some exciting activations. VIVA Vancouver is launching Bute Street as a pilot pedestrian plaza on Canada Day, which will be transformed into a colourful and fun outdoor lounge area, complete with tables, chairs, umbrellas and a piano.
And what birthday celebration would be complete without cake? At 2 p.m., the RSBA and WEBIA will officially celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday with the playing of our national anthem and serving maple flavoured mini cupcakes at Bute and Jervis Streets.
Find us at the Robson Street tent at Bute Street to enter for your chance to a $150 gift card #onRobson!
