12 noon to 5 pm
Jericho Beach, Vancouver
Don your vintage-styled or steampunk beachwear and join us on Jericho Beach to enjoy a day of vintage summery seaside fun! Unlike the United Kingdom, I think we can promise relatively warm waters! (No freezing by the North Sea!). You can select beachwear from any time between the mid-1800’s through the 1930’s. Spread the word to any costume-afficionados you know who might be keen for the excuse to try their hands at vintage beach wear! Keep in mind, if you’re worried, it was also quite appropriate in all these time-periods to also head to the Seaside in your long dresses, trousers and suspenders, etcetera. So steampunk, Victorian, Edwardian, ’20s or steampunk togs are also perfectly acceptable. Ladies, you could even come out in your bloomers!
I have created a photo album in the Facebook group specifically for resource photos etc.
Alas, I will not be able to arrange a charabanc to get everyone to the site, but I have chosen a site accessible by car and public transit. The # 4 bus will take you right nearby – get off at Wallace Street, the stop past the Alma Street stop.
