Spring arrives in March. With the crazy cold snap at the end of February, everyone is ready to do a gleeful dance when green buds start appearing on the plants, our days get longer, and we can finally pack away the winter wear. Metro Vancouver embraces the arrival of Spring every year by offering up a deluge of family-friendly events. Check out some of the highlights for March events 2022!
Gruff (March 2 – 20): Carousel Theatre for Young People shares a timely parable about immigration, friendship, sharing, and individuality. Gruff tells the story of two goats: one wealthy with plenty to eat and one poor goat with nothing. This production is recommended for kids aged 5-10 years.
T Rex: The Ultimate Predator (ongoing through all of March): Encounter the prehistoric wonders of the late Cretaceous Period and come face-to-face with a 66-million-year-old marvel! In T. rex: The Ultimate Predator, you can walk through the world millions of years ago when this gigantic creature roamed the earth with a hunter’s keen senses.
Cineplex Family Favourites: Come enjoy Cineplex Family Favourites on Saturday mornings at 11am. Watch a family favourite film each week for only $2.99. March 5th is Clifford the Big Red Dog; March 19th is Tom and Jerry.
Spring Break: The Family Fun Vancouver Spring Break Event Guide has everything you need to keep the kids occupied from March 14 – 28.
Pi Day: Does anyone else get a little chuckle out of Pi Day (aka March 14th, aka 3.14)? It tickles my funny bone every year, and I totally justify serving pie for dinner (that’s chicken pot pie followed by a berry pie for dessert).
Monster Jam (March 18 – 20): You like big trucks and big noise? Monster Jam roars won’t disappoint.
Free Family Fun at Metro Vancouver Regional Parks: from learning how to read a compass to watching for beavers, the fun is endless when you participate in one of the many programs offered by Metro Vancouver Regional Parks.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls (March 31 and into April): At the end of the month Carousel Theatre invites audiences to follow the story of nine-year-old Fiona who comes out as a boy and wants to be called Fin. He has always had a feeling – knowing something was different but not knowing what it was exactly or how to say it. This production is recommended for kids aged 7-12 years.
