How we wish summer could last forever #onRobson! It’s not just the easy, breezy sundresses and sun-soaked patio hangs that we love so much (yes way, rosé)…it’s also the heat and ice cream treats, sun-kissed skin and beachy waves and the laid-back, chill vibe that blankets the city from sun up to sun down. And nothing else beats those cotton candy sunsets! Summer is here and we’re ready to embrace every last drop of it. We’ve got lots of fun events and promotions planned, so join us and let’s summer together #onRobson.
In partnership with Small Stage, we are bringing an amazing live entertainment program to the street. Bute Robson Plaza will come alive with dance and music performances every Saturday in July, from 12 to 2 p.m. and 4 to 6 p.m. Grab some take-out and join us in the plaza for some good beats…singing and dancing along is totally encouraged (and Dr. Henry approved). If you love Krystle Dos Santos or Katherine Penfold as much as we do, you won’t want to miss out! Check out the full schedule here.
Rediscover the beautiful West End – surrounded by spectacular parks and beaches and brimming with shopping and celebrated eateries – Robson Street is at the heart of it all. We’ve partnered with the Blue Horizon Hotel and local Robson Street businesses to offer you a staycation package #onRobson. Any bookings made after July 1st for check-in before August 31st will unlock exclusive access to perks & promotions for shopping, dining, pampering and exploring #onRobson. Additionally, $10 from every stay will be donated to the BC Hospitality Foundation. Click here to see participating retailers, restaurants and attractions! Shop, dine, explore and unwind this summer #onRobson.

Robson Street Outdoor Summer Market
And coming soon this August is our first-ever outdoor summer market. We’ve partnered with Fall for Local Markets to bring you the finest local makers, artisans and entrepreneurs to Robson Street to showcase their products and wares every Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. We’re popping up on 700 Bute Street (between Robson Street and Eihu Lane) and beyond the local vendors, enjoy some of Vancouver’s favourite food trucks, live music, games and other activities. Check out the full list of vendors here.
Parklets + Plazas Galore
If you’re in the mood to just chill and relax or find a shady spot to cool down, we’ve got lots of public spaces for you to choose from #onRobson. Our favourite, Bute Robson Plaza, is a little tree-lined oasis nestled just off of Robson Street. This lovely spot has new picnic tables and not just ordinary picnic tables…these ones were a canvas for local artists, The WKNDRS, to share their colourful creations.
