Vancouver, Canada’s Highly Anticipated Cultural Destination, Oakridge Park, Announces the “Oakridge Summer Social,” its Special Summer Series for the Community

The Inaugural Oakridge Summer Social Series Celebrates Canada Day with the Announcement of Latest Canadian Retailers Set to Open at the World-Class Destination in Spring 2025

Oakridge Park, Canada’s largest redevelopment endeavour in partnership with QuadReal Property Group and Westbank, continues to define itself as Vancouver’s highly anticipated cultural hub with the announcement of its Oakridge Summer Social, a dynamic summer event series. Beginning on July 3 and running through September 2, 2024, the series will celebrate Oakridge Park’s cultural offerings and experiences focusing on family, community, arts, and wellness.

The Oakridge Summer Social will be an annual, seasonal event series for the community, after Oakridge Park’s opening in 2025. This year, the events will take place at the Oakridge Park x Pac Rim Patio, located at 1077 West Cordova Street, next to the Oakridge Park Gallery in Downtown Vancouver. Inspired by Oakridge Park’s vision of weaving nature into the lives of its guests and being the cultural anchor for our community, the Patio will be transformed into an immersive garden featuring custom floral displays and lush greenery, following the Oakridge Garden Club theme. A picnic-themed menu will be offered daily from 4-7 pm during the summer.

To kick off the Oakridge Summer Social series, Oakridge Park celebrates the best in Canadian retail. Lululemon, Harry Rosen, Aritzia, Arc’teryx, Canada Goose, Sporting Life, GreenTee Golf Shop, BC Liquor and Safeway will be among many brands available to shop at the world-class destination next Spring.

Events taking place during the series, and are open to the public, include:

  • Wimbledon Viewing Parties: On July 4, 5, 11 and 12, 2024, Oakridge Park will host Wimbledon Happy Hours (4-7pm daily). Attendees will be invited to watch match recaps and replays in the tennis-inspired environment. Specialty menu items, such as Pimm’s Cup and Strawberries & Cream will also be available for a limited time at the Wimbledon-themed pop-up bar.
  • Cinema in the Park: Oakridge Park invites guests and cinephiles to enjoy a four-week series of iconic Canadian film screenings hosted at the Patio. Reservations are required for access to the intimate outdoor lounge at the Patio, with proceeds benefitting BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. Screenings will take place every Friday from July 12 to August 2, starting at 8:30pm.
  • Family Summer Portraits: From Friday, Aug. 23 to Sunday, Aug. 25, 2024 and Friday August 30 to Monday, September 2, 2024, Oakridge Park will offer a unique portrait experience where guests will have the opportunity to bring their families for an end-of-summer portrait session. The set will recreate one of the beautiful, natural public environments that has been planned for the development.
