Kitsilano Showboat


Kitsilano is a Vancouver neighbourhood that begins on the south west side of the Burrard Street Bridge. Kitsilano Beach Park, or Kits Beach as it’s known locally, has a great beach, wonderfully upgraded concession stand and a huge swimming pool.

An additional feature of Kits Beach is the Kitsilano Showboat which, this year, celebrated its 80th anniversary. It’s an outdoor theatre on the south side of Kits Beach Pool. (Were it on the north side, it would be in the ocean!)

In 2015, Kitsilano Showboat ran from June 22 through to August 15. We caught the last show which was a North Shore based show choir called Burstin’ with Broadway. It was a gorgeous summer night with views you can’t escape being distracted by.

Kitsilano Showboat has acts Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday during its run. The acts cover dance, band and choirs of all types.

For Summer 2016, I’m going to be watching this space.
