Harvest Haus

Harvest Haus – Until October 9

Held under the Festzelte at Queen Elizabeth Plaza – Harvest Haus brings folklore from the 1st century to the Great White North. Combining modern fare with authentic European harvest traditions, gather your closest mates for the most gluttonous and gratifying weekends of the year.

The crunch of fresh produce, crackle of the grill, the fizz of the pour, the bite of the chopping block and the clinking of glassware. Applause. Laughter. Conversation. Music. The sounds of autumn! PROST! Located in Downtown Vancouver on the Queen Elizabeth Theatre Plaza, the Harvest Haus Halle seats up to 1,000 revellers. Choose from one of nine sittings, including a very special edition of Duelling Arts, to help celebrate the fruits of the season. Tickets

Mulan in Vancouver – October 15

Mulan the Musical is coming to Vancouver, with a spectacular live performance at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on Saturday, October 15.  Mulan is an exploration of adventure and victory that follows one girl’s determination to save her family. Expressing themes of loyalty and devotion through a captivating combination of dance, martial arts and music, Mulan tells the story of a young girl who takes the place of her ill father to fight in the army but must disguise her identity and serve as a man. Set in a time where a male from every family was conscripted to join the Chinese army, Mulan follows the courageous adventures of the main character as she sets out to prove her allegiance to both her family and China.

Willkommen! to Harvest Haus

HH edits-4New autumn festival brings a taste of Northern Europe to Vancouver

With their continuing passion for bringing accessible, premium cultural experiences to Vancouver, The Social Concierge has partnered with Wet Ape Productions to present the inaugural Harvest Haus from October 2 – 5, 2014.

For four days, Queen Elizabeth Theatre Plaza will be transformed into a multi-media mini Münich, encompassing everything from medieval minstrelsy to Bavarian brass oompah bands to live DJs. Harvest Haus is a celebration of German-European culture and West Coast bounty, presented in an immersive Oktoberfest-themed setting.

Beginning with a theatrical keg tapping by the Harvest Haus Burgomeister, each four-hour seating at the long tables under the canopy of the great Halle marquee will highlight the evolution of Northern Europe’s harvest festivals from medieval times to the present and feature interactive theatrical and live musical performances.

Guests will be able to tuck into authentic German delicacies like Spätzle, Brezen, Bratwürst, Schnitzel and Sauerkraut prepared with locally harvested ingredients. There will also be a traditional Swiss-style chocolatier tempting the crowds with his delights.

As befitting such a fest, European bier will be front and centre — served exclusively in the 500ml Harvest Haus Bierkrug (ceramic stein) that can be rented for $1 or purchased for $8 (yours to keep). Or, guests can bring their own 500ml ceramic stein.

Harvest Burgomeister VIP tickets take you right to the head table with reserved seating, access to expanded culinary offerings from Cocktails & Canapes in conjunction with Sole Foods, a complementary Harvest Haus stein, and access to a VIP bar, table service and more.

Tickets range from $25 to $50 and will be available to the public on Friday, September 5 at 10 am on the website: www.harvest-haus.com. Pre-registration for tickets is now available online.
