Any Vancouver Canadians baseball game, particularly the earlier scheduled “Nooners at the Nat,” is a treat for the whole family. Still, Family Fun Sundays at Rogers Field at Nat Bailey Stadium are an especially great chance for families to come out to the ballpark and enjoy a great Minor League Baseball (MiLB) game in the warm summer glow.

These Sunday games, scheduled at 1:05pm for convenience, feature special attractions and activities for families with young children, including different giveaways, mascot meetups, food trucks, and kids under 12 getting a chance to run the bases post-game.

There are six Family Fun Sundays left this season:

Register for the five-day Summer Camp at the Gallery held from July 22-26. Young artists (ages 7-10) will get a chance to discover the Vancouver Art Gallery (VAG) as they look at, think about, discuss, and create art in creative new ways.

Attendees will be introduced to the current exhibitions on display, Emily Carr: A Room of Her Own; Black and White and Everything in Between: A Monochrome Journey; and Of and About Posters: The Lawrence Weiner Poster Archive, through interactive projects and tours.

Using these collections as inspiration, campers will then experiment in-studio with a variety of art forms to make original works of art of their own. Participants’ artwork produced during the week will then be exhibited for parents and other guests on the final day of camp.

To register for Summer Camp, visit VAG’s website.
