Free March Events in Vancouver

There are free and discounted things to do in Vancouver in March 2021 including Spring Break activities, markets and outdoor exploring.

There isn’t as much as usual going on because of COVID-19, but there are still lots of ways to enjoy activities without spending lots of money.

 


NOTE: Due to COVID-19, many events and attractions in the Lower Mainland (and elsewhere) have been cancelled, closed or postponed. Click What’s Open in Vancouver to see what events and attractions are still operating. Also, before heading out to a place, confirm the status of the venue on its official website.
