Museum Happy Hour: A Festive Non-Holiday Party

Join us on the second Thursday of the month for themed events and activities for adults. Drinks and light fare are available for purchase. Events are limited to designated galleries and are not museum-wide.

A Festive Non-Holiday Party

Don’t celebrate the holidays? Feel like putting a hold on the ho-ho-ho? Burned out by seasonal obligations? We’ve got a party for you.

Join us for a Festive Non-Holiday Party on Thursday Dec. 14 from 5:30 to 7:30 PM in the Becoming BC gallery at the Royal BC Museum. The guiding spirits for this Happy Hour event aren’t the three wise men, but the Grinch, Scrooge, and Hans Gruber.

This cheeky party will feature three bah-humbugging comedians—Zach Rousseau, Elyot Ryan and Lucia Ribeiro—guaranteed to cure your holiday blues.

As with all Happy Hour events at the Royal BC Museum, along with fun and frivolity, we’ll feature a unique spin on BC history. In this case, the historical focus is on BC’s ultimate anti-party: prohibition. Through fun activities and games, visitors will learn about prohibition in BC and how we were once crowned Canada's most inebriated province.

The party’s only $10 per person, not including snacks and drinks—there’s no prohibition on enjoying libations at this party!

Bring the kids! Our Parallel Play Childminding is available for this event.

This is a 19+ only event. Valid photo ID is required for entry. To ensure the safety of our guests and museum collections alike, Security will conduct ID, bag and spot checks at the entrance. Prohibited items include any controlled substance, alcohol (not purchased at the event) and dangerous items. Any items not permitted at the event will be collected at the door prior to entry.

The Royal BC Museum hosts events where everyone is responsible for maintaining space that is safe for all participants. Safer space means everyone at the event is free from all forms of oppression and anything that can harm or limit our well-being. This includes expressing opinions in a respectful manner and respectfully accepting others’ rights to do the same.

Security and Royal BC Museum staff reserve the right to refuse or revoke entry to guests. These decisions will be made to ensure the safety and security of other guests and the Royal BC Museum.
