Vancouver International Improv Festival

  • When: October 6 to 10

Oak Street Farmers’ Market

Steveston Scarecrow Crawl

  • What: Throughout the month of October, Steveston Village in Richmond is being taken over by scarecrows for the 6th Annual Steveston Scarecrow Crawl. Dozens of scarecrows are the first point of contact outside many of the village’s merchants as businesses work together to put on the annual autumn spectacle. Creative sparks fly as each display is incredibly unique; these are definitely not your average scarecrows.

Port Kells Pumpkin Patch

  • What: Running everyday until October 31, Port Kells is offering free admission to their pumpkin patch. The little ones will love the tractor pulled hayrides, the chicken coop, the haunted house, the goat palace, and the hay maze, while mum and dad will enjoy a snack from the Pumpkin Cafe.
  • Where: 18730 88 Avenue, Surrey
  • When: Open daily until October 31, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Body Worlds: Animal Inside Out at Science World

Visitors will be able to check out what’s under the skin of some spectacular animals and determine what makes us the same – and different.
