The Firehall Arts Centre presents the return of its annual Eat. Drink. Play. celebration on the 14th of June 2018, at 7pm. Created to celebrate the foodie revolution happening in the Firehall’s backyard, the event brings together East Van’s finest restaurateurs, craft brewers, small-batch distillers, and performers for an eclectic summer evening of sampling and sharing.
“For more than 30 years, we’ve been presenting art at the corner of Cordova and Gore. The changes we’ve seen in the neighbourhood during this time are nothing short of staggering,” explained Donna Spencer, Artistic Producer at Firehall Arts Centre. “Four years ago, we decided we wanted to celebrate this transformation by inviting our new neighbours to come meet our audiences and share their culinary expressions with them. The event has quickly become an annual favourite: a perfect capstone for our programming season and a refreshing way to start the summer.”
The event takes over the Firehall’s entire premises, filling its theatre, lobby, studio, courtyard, and even dressing rooms with a smorgasbord of delectable treats and eclectic dance, music, and performance. Attendees are free to roam the entire complex, making culinary and artistic discoveries around each corner (as well as bidding on a silent auction bursting with prizes).
“There’s no better place to taste the best eats of the neighbourhood
and support the performing arts in our city.”
