5 Can’t-Miss Shows at the 2014 Vancouver Fringe Festival

8799490Vancouver’s weirdest theatre fest of the year is back.

The 2014 Vancouver Fringe Festival brings nearly 100 off-beat and experimental theatre acts to Granville Island, Sept. 4-Sept. 14.  Over the course of 11 days of over-the-top thespian excitement, they’ll stage more than 700 performances in venues ranging from traditional theatres to cafes and even “site-specific” places, which in the past have included fire escapes and bicycles.

First held back in 1985, the Fringe has grown into one of the city’s largest theatre festivals, drawing more than 30,000 attendees every year. Its unique format (many acts are drawn at random, literally from a hat) gives all artists, from novices to veteran actors, a chance to participate, while bringing new, adventurous and often hilarious theatre to audiences. The price is right, too: All regular-priced tickets are $14.

Here are a few shows not to be missed at this year’s Fringe Fest: Continue reading:

Given the recent changes to regulations involved with British Columbia liquor laws, the province is now bearing witness to an explosion of distillers launching innovative ventures, particularly around the Lower Mainland.

This evolution in policy moves to allow distillers to be legally able to sell spirits at farmers’ markets and secondary tasting rooms, as well as in grocery stores. The changes also include a more open approach to the universally popular happy hour.

Target objectives around these government mandates include growth of the local economy and an increased focus on British Columbia as a travel destination. What this means for visitors and Vancouverites alike is a thriving craft distillery scene that better supports local entrepreneurs in successfully producing and marketing small batch spirits.

These distillers have risen from a range of backgrounds, but they all share a common vision in creating quality liquor from the best ingredients that the province has to offer.
