Open on Christmas Day in Vancouver

Lights & Festive Displays

  • Visit St Paul’s Lights of Hope in front of the historic hospital site Downtown Vancouver.
    • Tip: The Wall Centre across the street has a lovely lighted display on their trees out front, a great photo op
  • Lights at Lafarge will be open (and free) all around Town Centre Park in Coquitlam.
  • Gingerbread Lane at the Hyatt Vancouver has a display of amazing creations by talented students, amateurs, and professional bakers setup in the lobby.
  • Liven Up Coal Harbour displays will be lit up along the waterfront from Canada Place all the way down to the Westin Bayshore.
  • The Christmas Tree outside the Vancouver Art Gallery, also the one at Bentall Centre (on Dunsmuir across from Burrard Station)
  • Granville Island Festive Lights (with complimentary parking after 6:00pm) Walk the expansive grounds of Granville Island’s almost 40 acres covered in lighted displays. Highlights include a stunning oversized star in the centre of the Public Market courtyard, and the Edison bulbs along Railspur Artisan District. NOTE: The market and Net Loft will be closed though.



  • The Vancouver Aquarium will be open from 10:00am to 3:30pm.
  • Christmas at Canada Place is always open! This free, family experience captures the spirit of the season with beautifully decorated Avenue of Christmas Trees, the nostalgic Woodward’s Windows and a winter wonderland display.
