This is where you’ll find Vancouver’s most interesting people

Tickets to Interesting Vancouver's 10th Anniversary show are on sale now!


For the past nine years, Interesting Vancouver has been diving deep into the uncharted waters of the Vancouver community, showcasing the curious, odd, and interesting ways people express creativity in their everyday lives. With our 10th anniversary coming up on November 10th, we’re gearing up with an extra special show featuring an exciting line-up of speakers.

You won’t want to miss out on this special night of delicious catering, music, and ten of the most interesting (specially curated) speakers Vancouver has to offer this year. Our IV17 emcee is Jocelyn MacDougall, the feisty and inimitable vocalist for the hit Funk and Motown cover band ‘Queer as Funk’ – need we say more?

Many thanks to our cultural partners, SFU Woodward, who is hosting this event on the traditional unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh nations.
