Free Events Happening In East Van

26 May

FreeEventWe all know, life is expensive. That got us to thinking about the many free events that regularly take place in and around East Vancouver.  Our community centers always have lots of family friendly events open to all ages. One of our favourite free events is the outdoor summer concert series at Trout Lake Community Centre. Although it has now concluded for the summer, there are lots of opportunities to listen to live music, check out new art exhibitions, attend workshops, dance, watch movies and more. We wanted to share some of the free events that we’ve come across that will be happening in East Van in the coming months:
