Outdoor Venue Booking

May, 2022 - update

There are normally three outdoor locations, which can be reserved on Granville Island, normally available at no charge for public performances and gatherings (family, school and community related) however, as we continue to recover from Covid restrictions and a backlog of other event bookings, these remain temporaraily closed to bookings. Although they may be used on a first come, first served, non-exclusive basis, they may not be used for a private event at this time. See below for booking information. 

Wedding Ceremonies - If you have a wedding reception booked at the Granville island Hotel or False Creek Community centre, and wish to hold your ceremony in the park, please contact [email protected] 

For future reference, please note that we do not take recurring bookings for private use, nor do we permit commercial use, where the public is charged admission or asked for a donation (exceptions are made for Granville Island Cultural Partners).

Please note, the Picnic Pavilion is, at all times, an alcohol free location. 

We wish you the best with your event and look forward to making these venues available to book by the public later this year. 

For questions, please email [email protected]

Go on, you deserve a little temptation.

If Granville Island is the king of Vancouver destinations, then the Public Market is the jewel in the Island’s crown. A fascinating assortment of colourful stalls, showcasing unique homemade products and the very finest in gastronomic delights. All fresh from the ocean, the oven or the field. Try closing your eyes right now and imagine the rich aromas permeating from the lavish displays. Shimmering seafood, warm baked goods, plump fruit.

Okay, stop. That’s enough torture. Come and browse
for yourself and see just why words don’t begin to describe it.
