Celebrate 20 years of arts, recreation and community at the Roundhouse 20th Anniversary! Join us for family activities, performances, drop-in arts, dance and fitness workshops, and so much more.

Public performances by longstanding arts partners and artist in residence projects including: All Bodies Dance Project, Back Pocket Singers, Bluebird North's Shari Ulrich, Kokoro Dance, Pride in Art, Roundhouse Community Dancers, and Roundhouse Youth Theatre Action Group.

Windows onto the past. Check out screenings of the Roundhouse Story video series, a fascinating look at the Roundhouse and Yaletown's history. Knowledgeable West Coast Railway Association volunteers in the Engine 374 Pavilion eagerly await your questions about the first locomotive to pull a trans-continental passenger train across Canada in 1887. The Great Hall Gallery and the Roundhouse Heritage Gallery take you from the 1880s to the present, with archival program guides, old news clippings, early Roundhouse documents, and much more.

Solstice workshops. All ages are welcome to participate in workshops with one of our founding artist residencies, the Secret Lantern Society.

Demonstration projects in the woodworking and pottery studio, an exhibition of student work, and a pottery sale to lure you into the worlds of ceramics and carpentry.

The Family Zone in the Gym with recreation and arts activities for active, creative inter-generational fun. Make sure to drop-in and contribute to our community vinyl collage.

30 minutes of Fitness and Dance. You can totally do it! Drop in on one of 10 free 30-minute workshops led by some of our most loyal instructors — try yoga, cardio core, Tai Chi Chuan, Zumba, or hip hop for youth.

Wrap, knit-bomb and web up the Roundhouse with Yarn-Around, a fabric- and fibre-based artist in residence project.

Rest your feet and groove. Grab a seat in the Roundhouse Foyer and enjoy our popular Jazz in the Mews live performances.

And of course... there will be cake. Yay for CAKE!

It's been a wonderful 20 years growing and changing with the neighbourhood and the city of Vancouver and we hope you will celebrate with us.
