While there are a number of places to celebrate the holidays, Heritage Christmas at the Burnaby Village Museum offers a unique, old-fashioned experience.

With thousands of sparkling lights, wreaths, vintage-themed displays and more, the area is transformed into a festive wonderland.  In fact, visitors may even craft their own magical holiday show with lights that change colours to sound at the bandstand.

Whimsical holiday entertainment will take place throughout the season, which includes theatre performances, community choirs, street characters and musicians.

Children may enjoy baking in the Farmhouse and visit with the king of Christmas himself, Santa Claus.

Some of this years fun activities include:

  • Holiday Entertainers
  • Heritage Baking
  • Brookfield Hall Performances
  • Children’s Christmas Craft
  • Father Christmas hours

Bright in Burnaby takes place on Saturday, December 1 from 4-9 pm to support the Burnaby Christmas Bureau. There will be a Tree Lighting Ceremony and light refreshments at 6pm, and all proceeds from carousel tickets will be donated to the Bureau.

Last year, revenue generated from carousel tickets was $2,199.96. Concord Pacifica matched this amount, and the total donation to the Burnaby Christmas Bureau was nearly $4,400.

The fun commences on November 24, 2018 and runs until January 4, 2019.
