Vancouver's favourite event that mixes cocktails and chemistry is finally back

After a three-year hiatus, this popular evening of drinks and science is back! 👩🏻‍🔬 🍹

Raise a glass to some excellent news for fans of cocktails - and chemistry - as the popular Science of Cocktails event returns after a three-year hiatus to Vancouver's very own Science World.

Taking place on Thursday, April 27, 2023, the evening features unique cocktails created by some of the city's top bartenders, crafted at an impressive 30 stations set up inside the iconic geodesic dome. While you sip and stroll you can enjoy food from Vancouver restaurants, chefs, and caterers - all while exploring Science World's galleries and exhibits and watching thrilling science demonstrations. 

Science of Cocktails happens to be Science World's largest fundraising event, supporting the facility's programming and offerings like its Bursary Program, which provides free access to tens of thousands of people who may not otherwise be able to visit the dome. This includes students and teachers who attend under-resourced schools; refugees, newcomers, and immigrants to Canada; people living with autism, physical disabilities, and developmental disabilities; and those experiencing financial barriers.

“We’re excited to be able to host Science of Cocktails this year, and I’m grateful for the hard work and collaboration from our team and community members to organize the fun-filled evening,” said Tracy Redies, President and CEO of Science World, in a media release. “Our province and planet’s future depend on people from all backgrounds having access to and being excited about STEAM learning. Since its inception in 2016, Science of Cocktails has raised $1.2 million, facilitating access to Science World and its programs across British Columbia, and we look forward to being able to support more families and communities with this year’s proceeds.“
