Holidays are the most exciting, especially in the liveliest, busiest places in the world like Vancouver. And as the Easter season approaches, you probably want to seize the opportunity to go out and have some fun.
Fret no more, as we've listed here some of the best things to do in Vancouver this coming Easter!
The Big Easter Run is an annual Easter event. This year, the celebration will take place in Jericho Beach. Anyone may join the said event, and in fact, you can even bring your dog along!
If you're interested in going on this year's Big Easter Run, you may opt to sign up for the Big Bunny or Little Bunny category. For the Big Bunny, you have two choices: the 5-kilometre or 10-kilometre track. Meanwhile, the 1-kilometre run covered by the Little Bunny category is perfect for newbies.
In addition to the physical benefits, the fun run will surely be socially and emotionally stimulating. Attended by hundreds of participants, it's nice to meet new people who share the liveliness and excitement of Easter holidays like you.
And Jericho Beach Park, dubbed as "the most beautiful seaside" in Vancouver, will remove all your stress this holiday breathtakingly. Register here
Ticket prices: $1-$30 When: 16 April 2022, 12 pm-4:15 pm Where: Jericho Beach Park, 3941 Point Grey Rd, Vancouver
Perhaps, you'd rather sit on a boat to enjoy the calm waters than join a fun run this Easter. Well, the Spring Fling Boat Party is perfect for you. It's a nightclub-themed party but on an open-air deck in Burrard Queen in Vancouver, cruising in the False Creek and English Bay. Quite interesting, indeed!
It features a 3-hour cruise in a 2-floor boat and a club dancefloor inside. Also, two DJs are usually invited to perform, and DJ Thunder and DJ Shalv are set to play the music this year. With their spacious, elegant deck, you will also experience the lovely scenery in Vancouver while breathing the fresh air in the sea.
Take note that vaccination and COVID-19 test are required. The event is also limited to attendees aged 19 years and above. Book here!
Ticket prices: $25-$223 When: 16-17 April 2022, 8 pm-12 am Where: Burrard Queen, 760 Pacific Boulevard, Vancouver
This exciting train ride is one of Vancouver's most enjoyable yet inexpensive events. Featuring a wide range of activities– from hanging out with Easter bunny mascots to enjoying the view of the plaza– Stanley Park Easter Train is perfect for the family.
Aside from the scenery, you'll surely enjoy the food, too! Three food trucks will be inside, including a coffee shop, cakes and pastries, and a corndog stall. Just remember the important notes before going to the venue.
As always, bring your mask and take special care of young children and other vulnerable family members. Lastly, dogs of any breed and size aren't allowed in the venue. Register here!

Although dedicated especially to vintage car lovers, the Easter Vintage Car Rally is something everyone will enjoy. As the name suggests, it's a car rally– a collection of all willing participants to show off their marvellous vintage cars. It's an initiative of The Vancouver Chapter of the Vintage Car Club of Canada. Imagine seeing all rare-to-find hot wheels gather before your eyes!
Typically, the car owners arrive before noon. Then, at about noon, they start their engines and journey to a destination. And what's more exciting about this event is that no one knows where the finish line is before the occasion, but rather, the facilitators announce it minutes before the ride. And with that, each year, the people of Vancouver have always been curious about this secret location.
Ticket prices: free viewing for the general public; $10 for non-members who wish to drive for the event When: 16 April 2022, 10 am onwards Where: Trev Deeley Motorcycles, Boundary Road
Easter at the Cannery is also a family event, offering everyone a warm, cozy, and casual dinner date. It's not just a simple cannery dinner but also fun-filled story-sharing. People also showcase their talents, crafts, and skills. Your children may also join games, an excellent opportunity to develop everyone's sportsmanship and teamwork.
And the highlight of the event– the Easter Salmon Scavenger Hunt, is undoubtedly a breath of fresh air from the typical Easter egg-hunting tradition. It will be best to wear a mask and practice safety measures for children and the elders for your safety. [Register here](https://gulfofgeorgiacannery.org/events/easter-at-the-cannery/0!
