What else is happening at Granville Island?
The island is packed with activities all day, including a multicultural parade at 1:30pm, starting at Ocean Concrete. Followed by opening speeches and CAKE at Ron Basford Park. Check out all the activities: Canada Day Events
We asked co-founders Ken Pickering & John Orysik who they are excited about seeing. And both agreed you should check out Neil Cowley Trio in our Made in the UK series and "The Newest Sound" - A Tribute to Jeanne Lee featuring Swedish vocalist Lina Nyberg
Ken also recommends checking out Hyper + with stellar Italian players Nicola Fazzini and Alessandro Fedrigo and John suggests the Simon Millerd Quintet fronted by CBC Galaxy Rising Star Award-winning Montreal trumpeter Simon Millerd.
Not only do we have live music performances all day at Granville Island, we also have a full day of music and more at David Lam Park and Roundhouse Community Centre across the water, in Yaletown.
