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 experiencing all things SOCIAL that Vancouver has to offer. We’ve drawn from various sources to make this calendar your monthly go-to list for all things social. From cultural festivals, to exhibits, markets, holidays & beyond – we’re proud to say we’ve finally done it: we’ve created the ULTIMATE social calendar. We’re pleased to release the June 2014 edition of Social City’s “SOCIAL in the CITY Social Calendar“.
