In just one week, festivities for Canada Sevens Men’s Rugby Tournament get underway. The first year of its second 4 year cycle in Vancouver, the two-day tournament continues to grow and add more entertainment to the already action packed weekend.
Even if you don’t have tickets to the March 7 & 8 tournament at BC Place, Canada Sevens hosts have added a new event to the line-up. The fun-filled weekend gets underway at the Friday Night Kick Off on March 6th from 5-10 pm at šx????n?q Xwtl’e7én? Square (the Vancouver Art Gallery North Plaza).
A FREE, all-ages event Friday Night Kick Off includes a beer garden featuring Stanley Park Brewing, local food trucks, sponsor activations, a DJ, and live performances including Side One, Vancouver’s favourite party band.
If you’ve been around downtown during the previous Canada Sevens weekends you may have seen that costumes are a huge part of the fun. Bananas, Bandits, Pirates, Cheerleaders or Furries, Fans and Friends come out in full force. In true HSBC Canada Sevens style, costumes are encouraged at the Kick Off so you can gather your costumed crew to capture the moment at the catwalk photo op! You might be having too much fun to capture the photos on the weekend.
Canada Sevens Friday Night Kick Off takes place March 6th from 5-10 pm at šx????n?q Xwtl’e7én? Square, North Plaza of Vancouver Art Gallery, free admission (beer garden 19+)
