Event Information


Feeling cooped up? Wanting to get some fresh air? The Vancouver Biennale invites you to join us (while keeping that 2-metre gap) in exploring the amazing public artworks that make up our Open Air Museum… by bike or foot! The Vancouver BIKEnnale/WALKnnale 2020 is a family-friendly, all-ages, cycle and walking based event that will take you on an adventure through 13+ of Lower Mainland’s most iconic art instillations turned landmarks, all thanks to the Vancouver Biennale. The Vancouver Biennale is a non-profit charitable organization that exhibits great art in public space, creating a catalyst for learning, community engagement, dialogue, and social action. So let US guide YOU! By registering and choosing one of our four, easy-to-navigate virtual routes, allowing you and yours to wind through Lower Mainland’s dynamic cityscape and multicultural hubs while actively engaging with your city.  

Register here: https://www.vancouverbiennale.com/event/tour-de-biennale/ 

During the BIKEnnale/WALKnnale 2020 event, make sure to stop at each route’s highlighted public-art installations and enjoy the activation pop-ups with exclusive giveaways and Biennale education interactive based programming, giving you a better understanding of why and how each piece was made. 

Don’t forget to explore our other highlighted points of interest (POI) along each route, including historical facts surrounding the very architecture and landscapes you’ll be exploring!  

Only those who register will be given an all-access, backstage pass to the Vancouver Biennale upcoming coming public-art installations for 2020. 

By collecting stamps at each designated stop, you will be entered to win our raffle surprise. The more stamps, the more chances to win! 

 So what are you waiting for? Hop on a BIKE! Get on your SHOES! And stay apart while coming together through active transport and public art exploration in your communities.

As of now, we encourage biking to visit our publicart installations as a social distancing activity, either individually or with those few whom you are already self-isolating with (family members, roommates) Currently this is not suggested as a group activity. We are closely following the suggestions put in place by the BC Centre for Disease Control and the Government of Canada’s community-based measures to  mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in Canada. We urge individuals planning to take part in our virtually guided bike tours to take the necessary precautions before, during, and after your ride.
