Canada's Biggest Drone Show - Bright Skies Drone Show at Canada Place

Canada’s Biggest Drone Show at Canada Place

  • When: December 2nd and 3rd at 6:00pm
  • Where: Canada Place (999 Canada Place, Vancouver)

UPDATE as of Saturday morning: Unfortunately both shows have been cancelled.

From Best Buy: “We’re heartbroken to have had to cancel the drone show for Friday, December 2 and Saturday, December 3. Our co-creators and North America’s leading experts in this field – North Star – advised that the drones were unable to fly safely due to unexpected signal interference. While we’re hugely disappointed, safety of course will always be our number one priority. We hope all visitors had a chance to enjoy the other attractions at Canada Place.”

The 10-minute show will feature several holiday scenes, festive images and animations, all set against the city’s iconic North Shore backdrop. Local spectators, families and friends are invited to watch the spectacle in-person before walking through the festive Avenue of Trees and checking out the Woodward’s Windows, all underneath the iconic Sails of Light.

The drone show will be visible from the vicinity of Canada Place, including railings on the west side or at the north end of the building. In addition to the drone show, Best Buy will dazzle Vancouverites with share-worthy light installations at Canada’s Great Bright North light installation. Guests will be able to snap holiday photos and interact with light displays at the north end of Canada Place from December 2, 2022 – January 2, 2023.
