Or exploring a traditional German-style Christmas market, while sipping hot chocolate and finding perfect holiday keepsakes at 90+ jolly merchant stands. Or perhaps taking an evening stroll in a wonderland of twinkling lights at the beloved VanDusen Botanical Garden. Or maybe soaring with Santa on an exhilarating trip to the North Pole with Fly Over Canada!


As if that wasn’t enough to draw you to Very Merry Vancouver during this most magical time of the year, now StayVancouverHotels is enchanting visitors with its amazing online advent calendar promotion. And what makes it amazing? Behind every single advent calendar door is a sparkling prize to be won that day.

This year’s Very Merry Vancouver daily prizes include a Festive Favourites Market Tour on Granville Island, which is already buzzing for the holidays with Yuletide foods, Christmas décor and one-of-a-kind artisan shops––in fact, it’s the perfect place for friends and families to share in the holiday spirit!


Over at downtown’s landmark Canada Place, you can also win sought-after tickets for Beyond King Tut: The Immersive Experience. Go beyond the mask and see ancient Egypt's most iconic king like never before in this fascinating and kaleidoscopic walk-through exhibition.


Also up for grabs are family packs to the PNE Winter Fair. This event runs for ten festive December evenings and features nightly Christmas-themed concerts, a large indoor skating rink, a full menu of magical performances, a shimmering walk-through light tunnel and much more.


But that’s not all! Visit the Very Merry Vancouver advent calendar every day––it runs until December 23––and you might also win family passes to Santa’s winter wonderland at the Peak of Grouse Mountain, complete with its awe-inspiring views of the city and the ocean twinkling far below.


Need more reasons to click on the calendar? You can also win tickets for the Vancouver’s Aquarium’s Holiday Splash––where you might even spot Scuba Claus swimming underwater. And if shopping is an essential highlight of your Christmas activities, there’s even a CF SHOP gift card to win, valid for use at the world-class Cadillac Fairview Pacific Centre mall in downtown Vancouver.

More than twenty must-see local holiday attractions and events are giving away tickets and gift packages as part of the Very Merry Vancouver promotion. And there are even hotels offering tempting accommodation prizes as well.

Ready to join in the holiday fun? Very Merry Vancouver is now welcoming online visitors to win its daily festive prizes––and encouraging everyone to consider visiting Vancouver in-person during the holiday season. It’s the perfect destination for a feast-like Christmas vacation with all the trimmings!


Internationally renowned for its natural beauty, cosmopolitan diversity and unbelievable food and shopping scenes, Vancouver is also becoming known for one more thing: as an all-time festive favourite for Christmastime visitors seeking to enjoy the best of the holiday season with all that Very Merry Vancouver has to offer.
