Japan Market Early Summer Fair

Jump right into Japanese culture through music, entertainment, vendors and demos at the Japan Market. This popular event is moving outdoors to Robson Square, which means more room to roam around and more great vendors to check out. Learn about health and wellness, enjoy Japanese eats, shop for crafts and products and more.

When: June 2, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Where: Robson Square. 800 Robson St.

Kick fast fashion to the curb and get into some pre-loved clothing at this two-day consignment sale. Archive brings together real Vancouverites with clothes they’re ready to part with for one big warehouse sale. Public shopping is on Saturday, while a VIP shopping and panel discussion event goes down on Friday evening.

When: May 31 to June 1

Where: Heritage Hall, 3102 Main St.

Celebrate Asian Heritage Month with the Vancouver Asian Film Festival for an evening of late night dim sum and a screening of Ang Lee’s spicy, edgy film Lust, Caution. Definitely an adults-only event.

Where: Pink Pearl Chinese Restaurant, 1132 East Hastings St.


Cher in concert


If you could turn back time, would you go see Cher in concert? Well, no need to get the time machine, because you better believe the one-named megastar is hitting the stage at Rogers Arena this week as part of her “Here We Go Again” Tour. Cher will be joined by special guests Nile Rodgers and Chic.

When: May 30, 7:30 p.m.

Where: Rogers Arena, 800 Griffiths Way
