Live & Local Concert Series

Live & Local Concerts

Where local talent takes centre stage

Our largest outdoor musical events, Live & Local Concerts feature new, emerging and accomplished local performing artists who take to the stage in parks and plazas. Bring a lawn chair or blanket for the performance. Our concerts start June 28 and are held from 6-8pm every Friday until September 6.

Live & Local Plaza Pop-Ups 2024

Live & Local Plaza Pop-Ups

Music, arts and games

Our Live & Local Plaza Pop-Ups feature a variety of fun, family-friendly activities including music, arts and games. Every Plaza Pop-Up is unique with activities from face painting to interactive arts and crafts and more. Local talent complements the fun evenings by providing live musical entertainment for attendees.  Pop-Ups run every Thursday evening from 6-8pm at various locations, starting July 11 until the end of August.

Live & Local Artist Sessions 2024

Live & Local Artist Sessions

Adding ambience to North Vancouver

Live & Local Artist Sessions add ambience to North Vancouver. Artist Sessions are smaller than concerts and are great for people looking to rest their legs, maybe grab a drink from a nearby shop, and unwind as local artists share their talent with the community. 

Live & Local Plaza Games 2024

Plaza Games

Mondays & Thursdays | July 4 – August 29 | 10am–4pm* 

Live & Local presents Plaza Games, where your favourite games are brought out for you to enjoy! Bring your family and play giant Jenga, Twister, scoop ball, charades, or even giant tic-tac-toe! Plaza Games will be at Lynn Valley Village Plaza for all to be entertained. Please note games are weather dependent. *Excluding holidays
