Here’s why KITSMAS is the most fun and festive holiday shopping destination in Vancouver

Vancouver’s favourite neighbourhood to shop in is about to get even more fun and festive. Kitsmas returns this December along West 4th, featuring a magical holiday atmosphere courtesy of live music, giveaways, and tons of holiday cheer, from now until December 24.
Kitsmas is here!

It’s the most wonderful time of year! 

While many of us turn to our computers or the mall to complete our holiday shopping, there’s no place more fun (or festive) than shopping on West 4th during Kitsmas.

Happening now until December 24, Kitsmas is the perfect one-stop holiday shopping experience for every person on your list. During the festivities, you’ll see West 4th transform into a magical winter wonderland complete with live music, giveaways, tasty food, holiday activations, and tons of holiday cheer.

The iconic Vancouver shopping street will be adorned with festive decor galore, including mistletoe on every block and special holiday mailboxes ready and waiting to collect your family’s letters to Santa and deliver them directly to the big man himself at the North Pole. 

With a huge number of exciting new businesses opening along the street, including Knix, Melanie Auld, Bloodline, and the new Arc’teryx flagship store, holiday shoppers are sure to find that perfect gift, whether it’s from an old-favourite or one of these new spots.

The two biggest days of Kitsmas are during Kitsmas Shopping Fest (happening December 7 and 14), with over 20 stores participating with live holiday activations ranging from DJs, to photo booths, carolling groups, and even a fashion illustrator who will draw you and your loved ones on the spot – the perfect moments to remember a day of holiday magic.

Of course, it wouldn’t be the holiday shopping season without some deals! There will be tons of giveaways happening all month long, so be sure to keep your eye on the Shop West 4th's Instagram page for their 24 days of advent giveaway, happening throughout the entirety of this year’s Kitsmas celebrations.

Don’t miss out on the most festive holiday shopping event of the year! Head to for a full list of events and participating stores.
