Top 5 Vancouver Christmas Attractions to Drive to this Winter

Spending Christmas or the winter holidays in Vancouver?

Why not create fun, lasting memories by seeing at least one of Vancouver's amazing annual holiday attractions--or see them all!

These are our top five attractions, our recommended "must sees" of the season.

1. Vancouver Christmas Market

A Vancouver tradition! The authentic German-inspired Christmas Market boasts delicious food, drinks and a ton of holiday themed activities. If you’re looking for some traditional holidays gifts, be sure to browse their selection of authentic wood carvings, toys, knitted goods, nutcrackers and pottery.

2. Enchant Christmas Light Maze and Market

The most immersive Christmas experience out there. Enchant is the world’s largest Christmas Light Maze, made up of over 55,000 sq. ft. of illuminated Christmas themed sculptures. Enchant also features a market with over 40 local vendors, 12 food trucks and a licensed eating area. Eat, drink and get lost!

3. Bright Nights Christmas Train in Stanley Park

Did you know the Bright Nights Christmas Train and Stanley Park Train Plaza get their sparkle from over three million twinkling lights? Hop on and enjoy the beautiful displays and live performers along the way!

4. Festival of Lights at VanDusen Botanical Garden

A true winter wonderland decorated with over one million twinkling lights. Enjoy the garden’s new carousel and the famous Dancing Lights show on Livingstone Lake while keeping an eye out for roving Scandinavian gnomes and reindeer in the garden. Don’t forget to take a photo with Santa.

5. Canyon Lights at the Capilano Suspension Bridge

One of the most beautiful ways to spend a holiday evening. Experience the suspension bridge, rainforest and canyon as a world of visual enchantment. See the world’s tallest living Christmas tree (153 feet tall!) and check out ‘Fireflies’, a new interactive lighting display in the rainforest. Using giant flashlights, guests can magically awaken waves of tiny lights that glimmer and twinkle like fireflies.

Well, there you have it! We hope your holidays will be filled with lots of Vancouver traditions new and old!
