Event details

Celebrate Pride at After Hours.

Celebrate Pride like never before - grab some friends, get some drinks, watch fabulously fishy drag performances, and learn all about the freaky sex lives of animals. This year, we’ve partnered with the Vancouver Pride Society to make this After Hours the best one yet. So leave the kids with a sitter, dress in your finest drag, and let loose as you explore the Aquarium's galleries. Food and drinks will be available for purchase. Drinks will include PYUR, Whistler Brewing Co., Hey Y’All! And Lonetree.
