Vancouver in March
In addition to the above festivals and events, March is the month of spring break school holidays, spring skiing, golf, getting back outdoors and the beginning of cherry blossom season and arrival of early spring flowers. When the sun is out, there are even spectacular sunsets.

The following video showcases Vancouver and the Lower Mainland in the month of March. Enjoy!
(Important Notes: The video was produced in 2017 using photos taken in 2017 and earlier years. Most of the information in the video is still correct as of 2019 except for the fact that (1) the Coastal First Nations Dance Festival took place in late February in 2019 and not early March, (2) PlayDome is taking a break in 2019, and (3) 2018 was the final year for TEDxStanleyPark.)
