Running for the full summer patio season June 1st – Sept 1, 2021, the PATIO campaign is in partnership with 15 BIAs, Phillips Brewing & Malting Co, Vancity, Tourism Vancouver and the Vancouver Hotel Destination Association (VHDA) to promote “stay local, patio local”.

To launch the PATIO campaign, starting today June 1st, we will promote a DAILY contest for the whole month, encouraging patio patrons to vote on the BEST patio in several categories i.e. Best patio for family, Best patio for sunshine, Best Patio Server etc.

Voting can be done over on Instagram:

Media coverage will focus on discovering the best of the best patios and supporting local, and will also feature the winners.

Throughout the month of June, daily prizing to patrons will be supplied by Phillips Brewing & Malting Co.

Throughout the 12-week campaign, weekly prizing will be hosted by the participating BIA neighbourhoods.


If you are a restaurant with a temporary or permanent patio, then we will include you in the campaign. You will be listed in the MAP, and on our social media and in the contesting. If you have a patio that just recently opened up, please contact Anna at
