2015 Vancouver Christmas Tree Lighting! — Buy a Bulb


The 2015 Vancouver Christmas Tree Lighting was a great success! If you missed the event, be sure to visit Jack Poole Plaza during the holiday season as the four magnificent Christmas trees, will be lit until the first week in January.

Buy a Bulb

Help us light the trees! Buy a Bulb to help us bring deserving kids to this year’s Children’s Festival! You can purchase 5 bulbs for $5 or 15 bulbs for $10.

Back for its 9th year, the Vancouver Christmas Tree Lighting takes place on Friday December 4th at Jack Poole Plaza. Join us to watch four magnificent holiday trees, one of which is 50 feet tall, come alive with hope and light. This free family-friendly event features live entertainment and music, free cookies and hot chocolate, local food trucks and fun activities for kids!  Come experience holiday magic at its best! Complete your night with a visit with Santa, or stop by the Canada Post station to write a letter to the Big Man himself!

In addition to the festivities, the tree lighting ceremony in Vancouver is for a great cause. At the event, we encourage you to make a donation to the Vancouver International Children’s Festival. Your charitable donations help the Children’s Festival enrich the lives of children and ensure the Festival remains affordable for everyone. Your contribution directly impacts the amazing outreach programs the Vancouver International Children’s Festival provides such as the Good Neighbour Program, Adopt a Class and the Hospital Outreach Program.  Help us keep the Vancouver International Children’s Festival vibrant in our community.

The Vancouver International Children’s Festival is pleased to partner with Amacon, Founder of the Vancouver Tree Lighting Celebration, for this memorable event.

Come experience this festive Vancouver tradition!
