Metro Vancouver’s Free & Cheap Events for November 2015


As the weather gets colder, Metro Vancouver does not disappoint with frugal events.  November brings lots of free and cheap events, including Christmas markets and lighting festivals.  On a weekly basis, I will be adding more events as they are found, so be sure to check back often.  As always, these events are free or $15 or under!

You’ll notice that the events are listed differently this month.  This change was to make it easier to find what you’re looking for.  Events are listed in chronological order. 

Make sure to comment below with your favourite November event!  We’d love to hear from you! 

If you want to stay up to date with all of the latest deals, don’t forget to subscribe to our blog by e-mail, RSS feed, or twitter on the right side panel for computers or on the bottom of the page for mobile devices and tablets!
