You can have a fantastic Christmas experience in Vancouver this December!


Santa Claus himself comes to Vancouver on December 1st! The Telus Santa Claus Parade is a fun day of merriment out in the open air where Santa rides a sleigh through downtown Vancouver and sits for photos with all the good little boys and girls in Christmas Square next to the Vancouver Art Gallery! Expect to see 60 marching bands, dance groups, holiday floats and more. There will be snacks, face painting, and fun games for the kids. This is a can’t miss event for the entire family.


Three handsome men with the voices of angels, The Tenors are Canada’s very own operatic pop trio. Clifton Murray, Fraser Walters, and Victor Micallef are Juno Award-winning singers who bring talent and charisma to the stage everywhere they go. These crooners will perform some of the season’s most beloved and iconic songs, filling the Queen Elizabeth Theatre with holiday joy on December 3! Let their music and voices spark the spirit of Christmas in you.


The Vancouver Christmas Market is a local institution, something that Vancouverites look forward to every year. Located in the Jack Poole Plaza, the market is a reproduction of a European village from years gone by during the most festive time of year. Shop for delightful, handcrafted gifts while enjoying live music, and riding the Christmas Carousel.  There are many delicious treats to look forward to, including homemade schnitzel, baked pretzels, waffles, chocolate, perogies, fresh roasted chestnuts and best of all, festive mulled wine! Whether you’re looking for an activity your whole family will enjoy, or a romantic night out for two, the Vancouver Christmas Market is the perfect festive night out.
