Yaletown to Host Candytown – Vancouver’s Newest Christmas Festival

The Yaletown Business Improvement Association is proud to announce the only free outdoor Christmas festival, on Mainland Street in downtown Vancouver. On November 23-24, Candytown is kicking off the festive season with a fun and interactive weekend.

Vancouver’s newest festival will transform the heritage district of Yaletown into a winter wonderland. Lights and candy canes will adorn lamp poles and costumed characters will parade down Mainland Street. Holiday shoppers are invited to start their seasonal gift buying in Yaletown with local merchants as well as a specialty market carrying unique gifts and holiday treats which will take over the street.

Show off your skating skills at the free Scotiabank Yaletown Ice Rink at Bill Curtis Square or hop on a horse-drawn carriage ride brought to you by Allan Financial for a festive tour around Yaletown. Santa will be parking his sleigh to give children a chance to meet his reindeer at Candytown’s very own reindeer barn.

Candytown will take place on Friday November 23 from 3pm – 9pm, and Saturday November 24 from 12pm – 9pm on Mainland Street in Yaletown. This outdoor Christmas festival is free, open to the public and sure to get people into the Christmas spirit.
