Kitsilano’s Showboat Summer Concerts Music Series

Kitsilano Showboat Stage

Kitsilano Showboat is a series of free outdoor summer concerts and multicultural performances at Vancouver’s Kitsilano Beach in June, July and August.


Showboat Live Entertainment at Kitsilano Beach

In 2019 free live entertainment took place on the Showboat Stage in Kitsilano on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays between 7:00 and 9:00 pm. The event was postponed in 2020 due to the coronavirus outbreak, and then it ended up taking place in an online format instead of in-person. Hopefully the shows can happen normally in 2021.

The shows usually feature local bands, choirs, dancers and other performing arts groups. Some performers are well-known and exceptional. Others are lesser known and less experienced. It’s all free though, and a nice addition to what is already one of Vancouver’s absolute best places. Kitsilano Beach is amazing!


Where is Kitsilano Showboat?

Kitsilano is a Vancouver neighbourhood located southwest of Vancouver’s downtown core. It’s west of Burrard Street, the Burrard Street Bridge and Granville Island, and it’s east of the University of British Columbia, Point Grey and Jericho Beach.

Kitsilano Beach itself is located in the northeast corner of the Kitsilano region not far from Vanier Park and places like the Vancouver Maritime Museum, Museum of Vancouver and H.R. MacMillan Space Centre.

Kitsilano Showboat is the stage and amphitheatre at the southwest end of Kitsilano Beach near the giant outdoor swimming pool. Its physical address is 2300 Cornwall Avenue.
