April First Friday

April First Friday in Vancouver

What's extra-hot right now at Vancouver's Downtown Association? The First Friday "Hot Sheet," of course—that's the downloadable PDF that lists all the most awesome stuff to do during the First Friday Artwalk in downtown Vancouver from 5 to 9 p.m. on Friday, April 4.

Take a peek at the Hot Sheet and see, at a glance, what's new and what's happening: new art exhibits, new places to explore, and live music to enjoy. Plan your evening by choosing from among downtown Vancouver's hip galleries, wine tasting venues, restaurants, vintage shops, clothing and home décor boutiques, and theaters with live performances. A downloadable walking map is also available. The Art Walk is always free, although you'll want to come prepared—you never know what might catch your eye or tantalize your taste buds!

Here's a brief sampling of what you'll find:
