Come See My City: Culture in Vancouver Campaign

In December of last year I wrote a review of the Nuba Restaurant at The Waldorf Hotel for Vancouver Mom. It was one of those experiences where I asked myself, "Why am I so uncool and culturally irrelevant that I had never even heard of the Waldorf until this event?" The Waldorf felt like a genuine, Vancouver cultural experience. 

To answer my own question, It's not always easy to find the pulse of city life when you run with the 2-year-old crowd as opposed to Hipsters R' Us. When I was contacted by the Vancouver-based digital agency smashLab to promote the Culture in Vancouver campaign, I was happy to oblige. The purpose of the campaign is to encourage urbanites and out-of-towners to take advantage of the local art and culture the city has to offer. Vancouver ranks as one of the best places to live in the world, not just because the outdoors are our playground, but because it is a thriving cultural centre. The campaign is accompanied by a mircosite, which offers a comprehensive events calendar of daily happenings in the city. For a busy mom like myself, the site is a quick and easy way to be in the know. 

A significant component of the Culture in Vancouver campaign is the sweepstakes. That's right peeps, free stuff. Five incredible prizes are being offered where each "experience" has been tailored with themes ranging from theatrical to culinary. The grand prize will offer a three day weekend of behind-the-scenes peeks into some of Vancouver's most notable cultural venues, including passes to coveted local events. For each prize the winner and a friend will receive two to three nights stay in Vancouver and dine at some of Vancouver's best restaurants

Entering the sweepstakes is easy: Go here, and enter your name and e-mail address. FYI the grand prize includes passes to a Canuck's game (Holla!). 

The sweepstakes will end with the drawing of the final winner on January 6th, 2012.
