A message from the President

On behalf of the Kitsilano Showboat Society, it is my privilege to welcome all of the citizens of Vancouver and visitors worldwide to make plans to attend great entertainment at one of the major attractions in Vancouver. Showboat’s scenic backdrop of the North Shore Mountains, English Bay and West Coast sunsets is one of the most spectacular settings anywhere. Today we have entertainers on stage from many of the countries around the world sharing their dances and costumes with us. We thank them all.

I would like to thank all of our supporters, performers, and volunteer organizers for their enthusiasm and enabling Showboat to continue to be so unique. Please join us for an evening of relaxation, enjoyment and fun.

Barry Leinbach, Kitsilano Showboat Society

Since 1935 the Kitsilano Showboat has been a volunteer led, not-for-profit society. (Nobody is paid.)  It is through your donations that Showboat can showcase local and international talent at its’ outdoor theatre. Please donate generously so that we can continue this legacy of bringing free multicultural shows to our audiences.
