Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival’s 30th Anniversary Season runs from June 5 to September 21, 2019 in modern theatre tents in a spectacular waterfront setting in Vancouver’s Vanier Park.

On the BMO Mainstage, it’s The Taming of the Shrew, inspired by Bard’s 2007 Wild West production, a hilarious runaway hit; it plays in repertory with the Elizabethan-era romantic comedy, Shakespeare in Love.

The Howard Family Stage offers two innovative new productions: Shakespeare’s All’s Well That Ends Well, set in India and sparked with south-Asian music and dance, and Coriolanus, a no-holds-barred political tragedy filled with resonance for our time.

Tickets and information: or 604-739-0559.

The Bard festival grounds can accommodate groups and pre-show events of all sizes. From intimate cocktail receptions to sit-down dinners, we’re happy to work with you to create a magical evening under the tents for you and your guests.  For more information and to enquire about dates, contact our Sponsorship & Events Officer, Cathleen Gingrich (
