Celebrate and learn Chinese traditions at the Classical Chinese Garden.
Vancouver’s Classical Chinese Garden offers a serene escape from the city.
The traditional-style gardens are just as fascinating as the garden’s history but also hosts a number of fun events that celebrate and educate on Chinese traditions.
Here are some events you can find at the garden in May!
