Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival’s 29th season runs from June 6 to September 28, 2018 in modern theatre tents in a spectacular waterfront setting in Vancouver’s Vanier Park.

A powerhouse classical production of Macbeth opens the season on the BMO Mainstage. It plays in repertory with the delightful romantic comedy As You Like It, set in the ‘60s and full of Beatles’ music.

On the Howard Family Stage, it’s Timon of Athens, a provocative study of greed and false friends, alternating with a new adaptation of Lysistrata, the story of the first-ever women’s strike. 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 (
