Thank you to all of our visitors for attending the 2023 Festival of Lights! The event is now over. Information on the 2024 event will be available in the fall.

Step into a botanical wonderland this holiday season at VanDusen Festival of Lights. Explore 15 acres adorned with over 1 million twinkling lights, featuring a glowing display inspired by the vibrant colours and unique plants and animals from BC’s endangered Garry oak meadows.

Get in the holiday spirit with the infamous Dancing Lights, explore themed light areas, and savour tasty treats from a variety of food vendors. There are 3 Dancing Lights sets this year. Enjoy the show every 20 minutes from the top of the hour.
