LiveCity Vancouver

I had heard about LiveCity Vancouver and knew that it would be a fun place to check out but didn't really know that much about it. I've just spent some time on their site and am now really excited to check it out. There are two venues, LiveCity Yaletown (more entertainment based) & LiveCity Downtown (more sports based). There will be big screens & lots of events going on.

LiveCity Yaletown: "on the water’s edge at David Lam Park. LiveCity Yaletown will feature live local, national, and international entertainment on the main stage in the afternoon and into the night, culminating each evening with a dynamic nightly closing show. Giant screens will show highlights of Olympic Winter Games sport coverage and visitors can enjoy the interactive Olympic sponsor pavilions, Vancouver House, and much more… all for free!"

Sponsor Pavilions at LiveCity Yaletown include: Acer, Coca-Cola, Panasonic & Samsung.

I'm really excited to see Bollywood Olympics with Delhi2Dublin on Saturday, Feb 27 at 5pm!

LiveCity Downtown: "an urban gathering place in the heart of the city at Georgia and Cambie Streets. LiveCity Downtown is all about the spirit of sport and competition. A giant screen will show live coverage of the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games events as they unfold. This is the place to meet with friends and mingle with visitors from around the world in a lively, urban setting."

LiveCity Downtown is also home to 2010 Canada Pavilion & CentrePlace Manitoba. They also have a licensed chalet-styled lounge, called LIVE@LiveCity Downtown, where you can partake in local food & drink.


  1. I live across the street from LiveCity Yaletown. Give me a shout if you're in the hood!

  2. I'm pretty sure we're going on the 11th for the Torch celebration!
