PAUSE in the Park
Slip on a hat, slap on some sunscreen, pack a picnic blanket and bring the whole family out to join us in the sunshine!
PAUSE is Indian Summer Festival’s outdoor programming hub, a unique architectural installation conceptualized to bring people together by innovative use of public space. Against a spectacular view of the Burrard Inlet and the North Shore mountains, PAUSE is situated at the site of the village of Sen̓áḵw (pronounced Sunakh), currently known as Vanier Park.
PAUSE in the Park will feature free workshops and performances from 11am-2pm. Grab a delicious lunch from a food truck standing by to keep you fed and relaxing in the sunshine.
Full venue description and accessibility information: PAUSE Pavillion
You may also purchase tickets or register for events by phone (credit card only) from Monday-Thursday 10am-5pm.
