Sip on cold drinks in the summer heat at the Ocean Arts Pavilion. Enjoy lounge-style entertainment featuring your favourite local drag performers and musicians.

Transportation: The #50 is making its regularly scheduled stops at Granville Island. 
#50 False Creek. The #50 False Creek bus comes from Gastown in the downtown area, along Granville St., and stops just off Granville Island, at the intersection of Anderson St. and West 2nd Ave. It will let you off on the southeast side of West 2nd Ave. Look for the large Granville Island sign and the yellow and rainbow-ed Kids Market along Anderson St. northward.

Water: There is a water refill station near the portable washrooms.

Food: The venue has light snacks for sale. However, there are food options nearby, but they close early. Feel free to bring in your own food if it will not create a mess.

Covid Protocol: Masks are strongly encouraged, and they are mandatory in the accessible viewing zone when not eating or drinking.
