Since the 1950s, the Tiki Bar at the Waldorf has been a locals’ favourite. Palm trees under the stars is a throw back to the island vibes of Cortes, with a twist!

This event will take place on the unceded, ancestral, and traditional territories of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

Accessibility: Unfortunately there are three stair steps to access the space. Our sincere apologies to anyone whose attendance this limits. If a little help from us would help, please let us know and we will happily be there to assist you.


  • 6:30pm – Doors Open
  • 7pm – Program 1
  • 7:30pm – Open Mingling
  • 8pm – Program 2

Regular ticket price is $20 and goes towards covering the costs of the event. However, accessibility is important to us and no one will be turned away for lack of funds. You are welcome to choose any other price to pay what you can. We are happy to have you celebrate with us. If you have access to more financial abundance, you may also add a donation to your ticket price. Donations will support our scholarship fund so that a larger diversity of people can enjoy our programs.

Online ticket sales are now closed, but some tickets will be available at the door.
