Christmas at Roedde House

What: In late November, volunteers and dedicated members of the West End's only heritage house attraction gather to transform the interiors of this handsome 1893 Queen Anne revival mansion with a cornucopia of resplendent period decorations. From wreaths to paper chains and from vintage cards to hand-crafted centrepieces, it's an immersive reminder of yesteryear Christmases. Partake of a guided tour (and ask lots of questions) or consider timing your visit for Sunday's afternoon tea. There are also two live music events here in December––classical on December 8 and jazz on December 12.

When: Throughout December (Tuesday to Friday and Sunday only), 2019

Where: 1415 Barclay Street, Vancouver

Cost: Admission and tour: $10; Sunday admission, tea and tour $10; concert tickets $12 to $15
