CBC Open House and Food Bank Day 2021

  • When: Friday, December 3, 2021 broadcasting from 5:00am to 6:00pm
  • Where: Online

Visiting the CBC Vancouver broadcast centre is a special holiday tradition in the community. To continue to promote public safety, the CBC Vancouver building will not be open to the public for tours or live broadcasts this year. 

The virtual event in 2020 raised over $2.7 million for Food Banks BC, and hopefully the momentum continues for 2021. You can make a donation here anytime to contribute to the cause.

CBC personalities and guests will be available to answer questions and virtually connect with the public across the province. The public can learn about the days’ programming and sign up for the virtual Meet and Greets online here. The 30-40 minute Meet and Greets will feature lively, candid conversations and an interactive Q&A. Registration closes December 1 and spots are limited.
