The North Shore is the perfect place to round up the family and spend some quality time for the BC Family Day long weekend. You will find activities to suit everyone from active adventures to educational encounters.

1. Family Ski Trip

Hit the slopes on a family ski trip! The North Shore’s three top-class mountain resorts: Cypress Mountain, Grouse Mountain, and Mt Seymour offer ski and snowboarding terrains for families of all levels. Best of all, during the Family Day long weekend you can access a number of discounts. Cypress Mountain Resort is offering a weekend full of family fun!, Mt Seymour is offering free kids lift tickets with any paying adult after 2.30pm all weekend, and Grouse Mountain has a day of activities including a pancake breakfast, live music, roving ice characters, and complimentary snow show tours.

2. Family Day Market

Go local and experience the best in B.C. produce with Family Day Weekend at Lonsdale Quay Market. The Lonsdale Quay Market not only has beautiful views of downtown Vancouver from it’s location on the water, but also offers a selection of over 80 speciality shops and services including a brewery, fresh produce market, and international food court. The day features an interactive petting zoo, fun crafts in kids corner, and appearance from Spiderman and Tinkerbell! Don’t miss their kids shops with options for toys and clothes, or the play areas located on the Retail Level.

3. Free Family Fun

Get all the family moving with a free day of classes at West Vancouver Community Centre. Classes include Qi Gong Demos, K-Pop Dancing, Arts & Crafts, and a family skate! If classes aren’t your thing, you can take a dip in the pool at the aquatic centre, or check out some of the public art on display.

4. Family Day Amongst the Treetops

Capilano Suspension Bridge is a great place to “hang out” over the long weekend. The famous swinging bridge welcomes over 800,000 visitors every year who come to see, not only the bridge but, the Cliffwalk, Treetops Adventure, Story Centre, Kia’palano, and Living Forest. For Family Day Weekend only, BC residents receive a family annual pass valid for two adults and one or two children (6-16 years) for the price of $99* plus GST!
