September is a month of change. The summer temperatures dwindle, the amount of sunlight lessens, school-aged children (and their teacher-parents) return to the classroom, and lengthy holidays come to an end. But it isn’t all bad! September brings us Fall with its warm, frothy drinks, pumpkin-flavoured everything, and the farm-bounties of apples and corn. Metro Vancouver also offers up a ton of family-fun events throughout September. Here are the top September picks from Family Fun Vancouver!
Check out our Fun on the Farm Guide. If you are looking for pumpkin patches, corn mazes, apple orchards, or petting zoos, our guide has you covered. There are ample opportunities, across Metro Vancouver, to enjoy Fun on the Farm this Fall.
TAIWANfest (Aug 31 – Sept 2) is a FREE family-festival that celebrates the storied cultures of Asia. Enjoy mahjong, flag football, jump rope, one-minute movies & more!
