Canada’s biggest music celebration, the 54th annual Juno Awards, is coming to Rogers Arena on Sunday, March 30, 2025. This means the nation’s top talent and most celebrated musicians will gather to honour the absolute best in Canadian music. It’s the fifth time the Junos have been in Vancouver and the first since 2018 when hometown singer Michael Bublé hosted.

Juno Week

In addition to the awards show, several other festivities are planned, with events held throughout Juno Week across the city and province from March 26 to 30, leading up to the big show.

The Junos coming to town means Canadians and music fans from around the world will be visiting, so you should start planning now. This is a one-time opportunity to see world-class Canadian artists on stage while tying in a visit to Downtown Vancouver and its famous entertainment district.

Live Music Scene

Vancouver has a vibrant music scene, with venues hosting local and touring acts throughout the week, particularly downtown, if you want to keep the good vibes going pre- or post-Junos.

Granville Street, Downtown Vancouver’s main entertainment district, is home to premier music venues like the Commodore Ballroom, Orpheum Theatre, Vogue Theatre, and The Pearl, where many Juno-nominated artists got their start opening for other bands before graduating to headliners.

You can also hear more casual live music or get your dance on while having a beverage or cocktail with friends at local hot spots around Vancouver like Guilt & Company, Portside Pub, Frankie’s Jazz Club, Biltmore Cabaret, Fox Cabaret, At the Waldorf, The Heatley, and Fortune Sound Club.


Record Collecting

For vinyl lovers, Vancouver has a thriving independent record scene with great shops like Red Cat Records and Neptoon Records a few blocks from each other in Riley Park, Audiopile and Highlife Records on Commercial Drive, Beat Street Records (for hip-hop lovers) and Vinyl Records in Gastown, and Zulu Records in Kitsilano.

Nearby Hotels

The Stadium District in False Creek is full of great hotel options to choose from. The closest are the JW Marriott and Douglas Hotel, both located inside the Parq Vancouver complex, a premier entertainment destination situated right next door to Rogers Arena.

Other nearby hotel options include the Hampton Inn & Suites, Hotel BLU, Sandman Hotel, and Georgian Court Hotel. For more boutique options downtown, the Hotel Belmont, Moda Hotel, and Opus Hotel might appeal to those looking for a more intimate stay.

For those seeking hotels iconic to Vancouver, it’s hard to deny the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver and Rosewood Hotel Georgia, both in the heart of the downtown core in walking distance of the arena.
