Festival of Trees Vancouver

What: Fans of the sparkling Christmas tree display that adorned the interior of downtown's Four Seasons Hotel for many years wondered what would happen to the beloved festive fixture when the property closed down in early 2020. Luckily, the historic Fairmont Hotel Vancouver nearby has stepped in to host this year's edition, transforming its lobby into a wonderland of shimmering trees, each individually decorated by local businesses and organizations. Due to current health orders, you won't be able to visit the trees in-person this year, but you can enjoy them at home via a cool, self-directed online tour. Don't forget to vote by text for your favourite tree: your $5 vote donation goes to the BC Children's Hospital Foundation.
