Sign up at 8pm, show at 9pm

The Vancouver Poetry Slam is an ongoing event, every Monday, at Café Deux Soleils. There is an open mic section, and then a poetry slam competition. We usually have a feature poet as well. Founded in 1996, Van Slam is the longest-running poetry slam in Canada. Since 2008, there have been regular poetry slams every Monday of every month.

In a regular poetry slam, the poet must perform a poem of their own, of any style, within a time limit without the aid of props or music. 5 randomly selected audience members will become judges and are given score cards to score the poet from zero to 10. The poets with the highest scores after 2 rounds of poems are the winners of cash prizes. Every slam has 10-12 spots open for poets with the top 5 going on to the 2nd round. check out www.vanslam.ca for more up to date and in-depth details of rules!

Cafe Deux Soleils and the Van Slam strive to be a trans friendly place and a hate speech free zone. Help us with that. We also acknowledge that this event takes place on unceded First Nations Territory.

Also, be kind to our VOLUNTEER door staff. They have to follow BC Liquor Board Rules and once we are sold out we can’t let anyone in unless someone leaves. You cannot save seats for people in line. Let them know if you are leaving. Also no ATM on site, it’s cash ONLY.

Capacity is 95, please respect the regulations of the venue.

1st, 2nd, 3rd & 5th Monday: Open Slam
Sign up at 8pm, show at 9pm

The Vancouver Poetry Slam is an ongoing event, every Monday, at Café Deux Soleils. There is an open mic section, and then a poetry slam competition. We usually have a feature poet as well. Founded in 1996, Van Slam is the longest-running poetry slam in Canada. Since 2008, there have been regular poetry slams every Monday of every month.

In a regular poetry slam, the poet must perform a poem of their own, of any style, within a time limit without the aid of props or music. 5 randomly selected audience members will become judges and are given score cards to score the poet from zero to 10. The poets with the highest scores after 2 rounds of poems are the winners of cash prizes. Every slam has 10-12 spots open for poets with the top 5 going on to the 2nd round. check out www.vanslam.ca for more up to date and in-depth details of rules!

Cafe Deux Soleils and the Van Slam strive to be a trans friendly place and a hate speech free zone. Help us with that. We also acknowledge that this event takes place on unceded First Nations Territory.

Also, be kind to our VOLUNTEER door staff. They have to follow BC Liquor Board Rules and once we are sold out we can’t let anyone in unless someone leaves. You cannot save seats for people in line. Let them know if you are leaving. Also no ATM on site, it’s cash ONLY.

Capacity is 95, please respect the regulations of the venue.
