Enjoy the magic of the season at this FREE long-running Vancouver Christmas event

This is where you'll find Vancouver's charming vintage Woodwards window displays, too!

One of Vancouver's longest-running Christmas events in on at an inconic waterfront landmark.

Christmas at Canada Place is in its 32nd year of delighting locals and visitors alike with all sorts of free family-friendly fun to celebrate the season. The event kicked off on Dec. 6, and runs through Jan. 1, 2020. It's one of the few local Christmas-themed events in the region that is open on Christmas Day and New Year's Day, too.

Stroll a festive Avenue of Trees, enjoy the twinkling lights of a 15-foot tall moose sculpture aptly named "Christmoose," and see the iconic sails of Canada Place shine with festive colourful lights.

History buffs will love the chance to go back in time with the charming vintage Woodward's Windows display that used to enchant Vancouverites visiting the department store many years ago.
