Start summer off with some Latin American flair at the Carnaval del Sol, celebrating its tenth year at Concord Pacific Place on Saturday, July 7th and Sunday, July 8th, 2018.
This two-day event is the largest of its kind in the Pacific Northwest and incorporates food, fun, music and more from countries in Central and South America. Multiple plazas focus on many aspects of these cultures: food, arts, family, kids, health and wellness, kids, beer, travel and a chill zone sponsored by Tim Hortons. And with the World Cup in full swing, there’s a soccer tournament taking place at the nearby Andy Livingstone Park soccer fields.
Carnaval del Sol closes off the Latin American Week, which includes cruises, a parade, a Latin film night, Women’s panels, and wining and dancing.
Carnaval del Sol is hosted at Concord Pacific Place, 88 Pacific Blvd in Vancouver. There is a $2.00 admission this year for single day access (or a $10.00 VIP pass for use on both days) is easily reachable by transit with a quick walk from either the Stadium-Chinatown or Main Street-Science World SkyTrain stations.
