This year marks an important milestone for our publication.
Founded in 1949 as the voice of Downtown Vancouver, Westender celebrates 65 years of publishing what matters most to Vancouverites every week. Much has changed in that span, and Westender has grown along with this amazing city of ours.
With that in mind, we now step forward with a bold new design that reflects the Vancouver of tomorrow.
As Vancouver's original alternative weekly newspaper, the Westender strives to bring you stories you can't find anywhere else. Stories focusing on Vancouver's most fascinating personalities, contentious issues, and the inside scoop on what's going down in your town.
When it comes to fashion and style, Jennifer Scott will keep you ahead of all the latest trends. Kelsey Klassen offers a front row seat to the local arts scene. Insider Sabrina Furminger has her finger on the pulse of the BC film industry, while our film critics Thor Diakow and Curtis Woloschuk watch every terrible movie so you don't have to.
Westender will also feature a weekly entertainment and music calendar, so you can stay on top of everything that is happening every weekend.
From Kitsilano to the East Village, from Mt. Pleasant to Coal Harbour, Westender is Everything Vancouver.
