Now until January 3rd, daily from sunset, we invite you to stroll our warm and elegant holiday light display.
With complimentary parking after 6pm, and of course no entrance fee, family and friends can walk the expansive grounds of Granville Island’s almost 40 acres, under the stars, or under an umbrella (after all, it is winter in Vancouver), and take in a relaxed evening among the lights, restaurants, bars and taprooms.
With multiple entrances on to the “Island” and wide open spaces, it’s a perfect holiday stroll with your pup. Highlights include a stunning oversized star in the centre of the Public Market courtyard, which changes colour for the occasion, the jewel tone oversized festoon lights along Railspur Artisan District, giant musical notes among the trees that surround the theatres, a perfect star looking over Alder Bay in Ron Basford Park, a canopy of lights hidden in a secret location, glowing benches, and more!
Off the Tracks Bistro is opening late especially for the holidays, with a pup-friendly patio; other restaurants and bars include Dockside in the Granville Hotel, Alimentaria Mexican, Vancouver Fish Co., Tony’s Fish & Oyster Bar, The sandbar, Granville Island Brewery Tap Room, Tap & Barrel BRIDGES, Kaisereck Deli (Public Market til 7PM)
