The holidays are just around the corner, and if you’re looking for a way to celebrate, you’re in luck. The Lower Mainland has tons of exciting Christmas-themed events and activities taking place this month. From a German-inspired Christmas Market to Capilano Suspension Bridge Park’s annual Canyon Lights event, check out the top holiday activities in Vancouver.
Vancouver Christmas Market
The Vancouver Christmas Market returns to Canada Place this year. Set up in Jack Poole Plaza, this festive holiday market features a wide range of local vendors selling everything from artisanal candles and homemade jewellery to CBD-infused skincare and handcrafted chocolate. There are also live carollers, tons of delicious food and drink, rides for young ones, and even visits from Santa! Whether you’re looking to eat or shop, you’ll be sure to love this Christmas market.
Canyon Lights at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park
If there’s one holiday event you attend in Vancouver, let it be the Canyon Lights at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. In North Vancouver is where you’ll find Canyon Lights, a truly magical Christmas experience (it’s no wonder it receives hundreds of thousands of visitors each year). For 2021, the world-famous Capilano Suspension Bridge will be lit from end to end, and will even feature a colour-changing display (great for photo opps). Visitors are also invited to stroll among the canopy treetops surrounded by a sea of glittering Christmas lights, make their way through a neon light tunnel on the Cliffwalk, and indulge in a warm beverage from the cafe.
VanDusen Festival of Lights 2021
The VanDusen Botanical Garden comes alive during the holidays thanks to their annual VanDusen Festival of Lights. This impressive festival sees the garden illuminated by over one million lights, turning it into a festive winter wonderland. Holiday-themed treats and music are also available on-site.
If you’re visiting Surrey this holiday season, then be sure to participate in the Christmas-themed activities and events above. And if you need a place to stay during your visit, we’d love to have you at the Comfort Inn & Suites Surrey. We combine quality service, a welcoming atmosphere, and family-friendly amenities with an unbeatable location near some of the city’s top attractions.
