Out For Lunch–A Friday Afternoon Concert Series

Presented and Co-Sponsored by Gene Ramsbottom as a Centennial Project for Vancouver's birthday in 1986, the Out For Lunch Concert Series, hosted and supported by the Vancouver Art Gallery since its inception, has brought thousands of local and international musicians to the attention of Vancouver audiences.

This concert series is offered on selected Friday afternoons at 12:10 PM and is free for members or with Gallery admission.*.

The Gallery has recently introduced improvements to the ticketing process for the Out for Lunch Concert Series.

Starting at 11 AM on concert days, guests are invited to proceed directly to the Admissions Desk to claim their tickets. Members, please have your membership cards ready.

After securing their concert ticket, guests are welcome to enjoy the exhibitions or relax in the designated waiting area until concert doors open at 11:50 AM. Seating in the concert space is first come, first served.

Each concert has a set capacity, and limited tickets are available.

Members, please note that your Gallery Membership must be current on the day of the concert to redeem your complimentary ticket. The Membership Desk will be open for renewals and can issue you a complimentary ticket once your membership is renewed.
