Vancouver's Best Day Ever Blanket Fort

On Saturday, May 13, Canuck Place will transform the corner of Seymour and Georgia with the construction of Vancouver’s biggest blanket fort that will span almost 2,000 square feet.

Event attendees will enjoy interactive musical performances, childhood culinary delights (like Earnest Ice Cream and Mom’s Grilled Cheese), and family-friendly games and activities. There will also be special appearances by Vancouver Canucks player, Daniel Sedin, and beloved Vancouver Canucks mascot, Fin.

Best Day Ever celebrates the favourite ways that Canuck Place families spend time together, from quieter moments spent in the Canuck Place Hospice gardens to exciting adventures on recreation therapy outings. Join us on Saturday to reflect on and share how you would spend your best day ever.
