Live Music with 604 Records

YVR is excited to partner with Vancouver based record label, 604 Records, to bring talented local Canadian musicians who you’ll find performing throughout YVR in celebration of Canada 150. Performances will be held both before and after security, on Wednesdays and Fridays in July.

Previously, YVR has held summer celebrations in July and August known as YVR Take-Off Fridays. Our new July event will replace YVR Take-Off Fridays and allows us to celebrate Canada’s 150th and focuses on our unique shopping and dining offerings. In addition, this summer will see the return of our popular community event, YVR Chill Out, which offers free family entertainment on August 19th at Larry Berg Flight Path Park.
