Gather in the city’s most unforgettable setting: the Vancouver Art Gallery. This turn-of-the-century former provincial courthouse building presents a dramatic exterior backdrop. Inside, the Gallery offers affordable meeting spaces for weddings, receptions, cocktail parties, seasonal gatherings and corporate events. Locations include the grand foyer and rotunda—with a soaring dome and twin marble staircases—and two of the building’s original historic courtrooms, complete with judge’s stands and rich hardwoods. Or top up your event on the city’s best rooftop experience, the Gallery’s Rooftop Pavilion. Completely protected from the elements, this space enjoys a spectacular view overlooking Robson Square in a unique setting.

Home to over 10,000 original pieces of art, the elegance this venue brings will make it unforgettable. Being the largest gallery in western Canada, there are many spaces to choose from.
