Check the Metro News Daily - Vancouver Edition- for Catherine Barr's newest column - Social Eyes - 120,000 copies in print every Tuesday.


Who says we aren't famous here in Vancouver? Celebs and stars from all over the world visit us every year for charity events, movie shoots, concerts, gala openings and more. Some actually live a quiet existence right here in town - and some are only here for a good time, not a long time. Here's a quick look back at some of my favourite events, and favourite famous faces, from the last year. Happy Holidays to everyone. Looking forward to seeing you all again next year.

Catherine Barr, Vancouver's celebrity events reporter and photographer, is supported online by CLR Communications Ltd, , and

Vancouver's best events and celebrity functions are all archived here. Vancouver pubs, clubs, nightclubs, gala events and fundraisers are included. Thanks for viewing.

Due to server capacity, you will not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs. With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.

If you would like to receive a copy of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo. Thanks.
