It’s time for you to get more SOCIAL in YOUR CITY Vancouver, and we’ve compiled a incredible social calendar to make it easy for you!
Every month, Social City Networking INC. compiles a list of Vancouver’s must-attend events. We make it easy to ensure that you’re always around ‘n about town experiencing all that vivacious Vancouver has to offer. We’ve drawn from various sources to make this calendar your monthly go-to list for all things Vancouver. From cultural festivals, to exhibits, markets, holidays & beyond, at Social City Networking, we’re proud to say we’ve finally done it – we’ve created the ULTIMATE social calendar. We’re pleased to release the February 2014 edition of Social City’s “SOCIAL in the CITY Calendar”. As always, if you have an event you’d like us to include, share.
