The Kitsilano Showboat runs every summer from June to August at Kitsilano Beach. Our mission is two-fold: to provide free multi-cultural entertainment to Vancouver residents and visitors; and to provide a venue for entertainers of all ages and abilities to perform at a world class venue. Kitsilano Showboat has been a Vancouver tradition since 1935 and has had multiple generations of families perform on the Showboat stage. Some performers who got their start on the Showboat stage have even gone on to become world class entertainers!
