The first weekend of summer is full of colour, music, and art! The Vancouver International Jazz festival has begun, bringing music to venues across the city, and out in the streets and plazas.

5 Free Fun Things To Do in Vancouver In June 2013

1) Shout “opa” and dance at Greek Day on Broadway, June 23
Don’t miss this free Vancouver summer festival produced by Vancouver’s longstanding Greek immigrant community in Kitsilano. Every year the party draws over 100,000 Vancouverites to West Broadway between MacDonald and Blenheim. Expect tasty Greek food, wine and olive oil tasting, cooking demos, folk dancing, live music, art, a kids’ zone with craft stations and an Athenian Agora with handicrafts for sale. Don’t worry, you’ll burn off the honeyed loukoumades by dancing in a circle.

2) Cheer on the competitors at Rio Tinto Alcan Dragon Boat Festival, June 21-June 23
From Remy’s round-up of free Vancouver summer festivals: Even though this fest is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, it’s still a bit of a hidden gem.  For two days, the shores of False Creek around Science World are packed with spectators taking in North America’s largest dragon boat race.  While paddlers in brightly painted boats churn up the water, landlubbers enjoy free live music and soak up the sun in the beer garden.
