Enchanted Nights, Vancouver Park Board’s newest holiday event, begins December 4

December 2 2015

“Bloedel Conservatory is a fantastic setting in which to work with magic and whimsy so we’re very pleased to have local artists involved in Vancouver’s newest holiday event,” said Vancouver Park Board Vice Chair Sarah Kirby-Yung.

Enchanted Nights at Bloedel

Bloedel Conservatory is getting into the holiday spirit with Enchanted Nights.

Set among the tropical plants and company of 200 exotic birds, Enchanted Nights is a miniature world of artisan fairy and sprite villages with illuminated landscapes, holiday music and live entertainment. It runs daily from December 4 to January 3 (closed December 25), 4 – 9 pm.

Local artists work on display

Several local artists - Benjamin Kikkert of New-Small & Sterling Studio Glass, Melissa Hume of Dirty Clay Studios, Christopher Moreno of 365 Productions, Corey Cote and the Enchanted Forest Collective  - are bringing the miniature fairy world to life.

“Bloedel Conservatory is a fantastic setting in which to work with magic and whimsy so we’re very pleased to have local artists involved in Vancouver’s newest holiday event,” said Vancouver Park Board Vice Chair Sarah Kirby-Yung.

The fun continues outside at Queen Elizabeth Park plaza, the highest point in the city, with holiday lights, pony rides and tasty treats.
