It’s that time of year again: lights are twinkling, bells are ringing, wine is mulling, and credit cards are tapping… it’s the holiday season in Vancouver! Whether you’re planning a visit to Vancouver to shop for gifts, attend the corporate Christmas party, or just take in the holiday spirit, this city has lots to do and see to get you in the mood.

Right opposite The Burrard, you’ll find the impressive, twinkling Lights of Hope display, an annual fundraiser for St. Paul’s Hospital – if you’re looking to kick up the holiday spirit during your stay, ask for a room with a view of it!

We’re sure ready for the festive spirit to hit us this year, which means that a few of our favourite holiday events actually started in November (we’re looking at you, Vancouver Christmas Market!) However, most of the Yuletide action stretches throughout the month of December, with a couple of events extending into January. Note that because of COVID-19, the experience might look a little different from years past, so we encourage you to check out each website before you head out. Here are just a few of our favourites.

  • PNE Winter Lights – Load the gang into the “family sleigh” (aka your car) and drive through nine magical wonderlands filled with lights.
