Shoppers browse the artisan market at the Candytown holiday festival in Yaletown, Vancouver.
2023 - TBC


What (from 2022): Celebrating its 10th anniversary with an extended two-day event in 2022, Vancouver's free, family-friendly holiday festival is filled with sugar-plum-flavoured Christmas cheer. Transforming the plazas of Yaletown into a cheery winter wonderland, you'll find toe-tapping live music, a gift market, horse-drawn carriage rides (by-donation) and some super-cool ice-carving demonstrations. Also look out for roaming stilt walkers and photo-friendly costumed characters. Don't forget to drop by the area's Roundhouse Community Centre where historic steam engine 374 will be decked out in twinkling lights. Thirsty? Adults can partake of a self-guided CandyTown cocktail tour to toast the season in style. And if you're keen to partake of some Christmas shopping while you're here, download the Yaletown Gift Passport for deals and discounts at local stores.
