VanCAF Kickoff Party
7:00 PM – 2:00 AM
The Lido (518 E Broadway)

VanCAF starts Saturday and promises an amazing-yet-hectic time, so why not kick things off with a couple of drinks in a relaxed atmosphere at one of Vancouver’s best bars?  Well, that’s how we think you should start things off, which is why the official VanCAF kickoff party takes place Friday May 19 at The Lido! Come hang out all night or pop in for a nightcap with fellow creators, exhibitors and attendees!

Who can come? Anyone who is of legal drinking age is invited.
How much is it? Just the cost of whatever your drink of choice is! (relevant to that, please note that the Lido is cash-only!)

The Lido is a popular spot for Vancouver’s amazing arts scene & we can’t guarantee the venue won’t fill up, so remember: the earlier the better to avoid waiting in line!

Please RSVP on the Facebook event, so we know how many people to expect!



Vancouver Comic Jam – Special VanCAF Edition

Bring your own pencils/pens. Paper is provided.

Who can come? Anyone who is of legal drinking age is invited.
How much is it? No admission fee, but… They provide their full food menu to order from and a selection of craft beers and drinks.
