June Events in Vancouver

Below is what’s happening on the different days of the month in June 2020. Note: schedules are subject to change – check official event websites for exact details.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Beginning in the spring of 2020, many Lower Mainland events and attractions have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and efforts to contain it. As you’ll see in the calendar below, many events are marked as “to be confirmed” or “to be determined” or “(TBD)”. Unless we know that an event has been cancelled or postponed, we have marked it in most cases as “(TBD)” to reflect the fact that its status may change. For the most up-to-date information, see official individual event websites.

For a comprehensive list of Lower Mainland places that have been affected to date, see our article about Coronavirus Closures & Cancellations.

  3. Go camping and take part in all the region’s great summer activities.
  4. Enjoy some of the music around town (free or paid) during the TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival.
  5. Go kayaking at Deep Cove in North Vancouver, or rent a canoe or kayak anywhere and enjoy the start of summer.

Typical June Weather

Summer finally arrives in Vancouver in June, even though the weather is probably just as good or even better in May.

As Vancouver is pretty far north (if you come from anywhere other than Canada), the days are fabulously long, with the sun not setting until after 9 pm. Average June high temperatures are a balmy 19 degrees C (or 66 F), and the lows are close to 11 C (or 52 F).

Statistics suggest it usually only rains about 45 mm (or less than 2 inches) in the month, but many years it feels like way more. Although June’s weather can be a bit unpredictable, it’s still more often than not a fine month to be in Vancouver.

Recommended June Activities

Being a summer month, June is definitely a month to be outside (except for on the rainy days). With the ski season long past and forgotten, Vancouverites focus their attention solidly on outdoor summertime activities.

Popular June activities include hiking and camping in the region’s various parks, canoeing and kayaking in places like Deep Cove, picnics throughout the region, and hanging out at beaches like English Bay, Kitsilano, Jericho, Spanish Banks, Stanley Park (Second and Third Beaches) and Ambleside (in West Vancouver).

Being the last month of the year before schools let out, Vancouver really starts to come alive in June. The region’s night markets are in full swing and all sorts of live entertainment and other events start springing up everywhere (or at least in lots of places).
