Granville Island Festive Lights | Kids Out and About Vancouver

Granville Island Festive Lights

On November 1st, as the return to Daylight Standard time brings dusk to Granville Island early, we turn on our twinkling winter lighting to bring cheer to the "Island" over the shorter days of winter. These pretty, ambient lights remain on until March, and the return to Daylight Savings time.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately.

November 12th  – January 3rd  -  Christmas and Holiday Lights

On November 12th, following Remembrance Day, we turn on our Christmas and holiday light display and invite visitors to stroll the "Island". From the famous Public Market to the Granville Island Hotel, lights across the almost 40 acre site make for a beautiful, open air stroll whether you are under the stars, or under an umbrella. Join us before or after at one of the great restaurants or bars on Granville Island, or come early for unique local shopping at retail shops and artist studios. Lights are on daily, including holidays, from sundown. Free admission to the Island, as always, and continued temporary free parking.

Don't miss the beautiful star in the Public Market courtyard, the vintage crane, over by the Granville Island Hotel, all lit up, or discover the canopy of lights, tucked away in a hidden alleyway.  

All Covid-19 Protocal in affect across Granville Island exterior and interior locations. No tours or busses. No groups or gatherings over six.

Please enjoy the holiday season with care and consideration. Remain in your bubble and keep Granville Island safe for everyone.
