Lumiere Festival Vancouver

Comments 3 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Vancouver’s newest holiday organization, the Lumière Festival Vancouver Society, presents a fun collaborative initiative this week that will link the West End and Yaletown.


Lumiere Festival Vancouver

Businesses within the West End and Yaletown Business Improvement Associations (BIAs) have setup impressive lighting installations that will be in place until January, 2015 and between December 11th and December 13th, the commercial streets in these popular neighbourhoods will be filled with live entertainment, street activations, and a free hop-on/hop-off trolley tour.

Lumiere Vancouver will connect you with Yaletown, Davie Village, St Paul’s Hospital Lights of Hope, Bright Nights in Stanley Park, Lights for Life at English Bay, and more.

Other highlights between December 11th and December 13th include the Comox Winter Jam light parade down the Comox-Helmcken Greenway, free ice skating at the West End Community Centre, a special appearance by Santa Claus and a Surprise Celebrity Drag Claus at the Denman Place Mall, and a carnivalesque light and performance spectacle at Yaletown’s Bill Curtis Square.

    No offence but I am finding it really difficult to find online information about the Lumierre festival, the links on the website about a free skate don’t go to a site about when it occurs, just the west end community website with no other easy links. A listing of all events is not available easily online. I know I have seen posters, but if i don’t grab it and take it with me I don’t remember every detail. Get someone more tech savvy to run your website!

    Hi Marie,

    I found a PDF copy of the itinerary on the Lumiere website so I linked it a few times in this post. I hope that helps! You can find it here:
