Laneway Living Room - Grandma's House Site Plan

As you undoubtedly read in this earlier post, the Vancouver Public Space Network, with a grant from VIVA Vancouver and support from great neighbours, is transforming two laneways (for one day each) into fun and friendly spaces using upcycled furniture, flea market finds, and pallets.

East Van is the first neighbourhood up! Join us for Grandma’s House – a laneway activation taking place south of Venables between Parker Street and Napier Street (address is 1027 Commercial Drive) on Saturday, July 29th.

This activation will use some creatively upcycled materials to recreate Grandma’s House (yours? mine? somebody’s!) You can expect food, games, big band music, classic movies, and maybe even a spot of afternoon tea.


Event Details:

12pm – 9pm Saturday, July 29th, 2017

1027 Commercial Drive laneway (south of Venables St between Parker St and Napier St).

Here is our Facebook event page.

Join us Saturday, July 29th at Grandma's House!
