Vancouver’s Spot Prawn Festival

Hey look, I’ve spotted a prawn festival and it’s happening at Fisherman’s Warf.

Everything happens on May 15th and marks the beginning of British Columbia’s spot prawn season.

The festival is family-friendly and completely free to attend.

The festival ran on May 19th in 2019 and was cancelled in 2020 before being moved online for 2021.

Last year’s events included things like virtual cooking lessons.

This year, everything runs from 11 am to 3 pm and there’s a lot going on during that time.

This year, expect the free live cooking demonstrations to come back along with the musical performances on the docks. Wonder if they’re playing any sea shanties?

The food is also back with a 10-ounce bowl of chowder being $10 and a delicious brunch tasting menu for $65.

While you’re there, you can also get your fresh prawns from local fishers.

It’s great to see so many events going back to normal and this one is on that list.

Be sure to head out and share your love of prawns at Vancouver’s Spot Prawn Festival!

I’m still trying to figure out why there’s a festival all about spotting prawns.
