It’s easy to consider November as just a placeholder month between the excitement of Halloween and Christmas, but don’t be so quick to wish the 11th month away. Here in Vancouver there’s a wide range of activities and events taking place to suit all interests. From cabaret to crafts and culture to cuisine, there’s a lot to see and do – even if the days are getting a little shorter.
November 1 – December 31
Bacio Rosso is Canada’s very first gourmet cabaret cirque. Sit among jugglers, contortionists, trapeze artists, magicians and more while enjoying a four-course gourmet dinner. A “Moulin Rouge meets cabaret” mash-up, this event is designed to delight the senses. Chef Adam Pegg of Vancouver’s La Quercia restaurant has designed a seasonally inspired Italian menu to accompany the entertainment.
