VHF Places That Matter Celebration


As part of Heritage Week (February 17th – 23rd), we at Vancouver Heritage Foundation invite you to our third Places That Matter Community Celebration. Join VHF to hear stories about significant places in Vancouver from the people and organizations who brought their history forward.

The Places That Matter Community History Resource is an ongoing project that shares stories and information on the local, cultural and lesser-known history of Vancouver. To learn more about the project, visit the website:

This free celebration includes displays related to Places That Matter sites and local history (6 pm – 7 pm), a “heritage week proclamation” and a short program of storytelling (7 pm – 8 pm). The event is free and open to the public, and takes place at Heritage Hall at 3102 Main Street from 6pm to 8:30pm on Wednesday, February 19th.
