December is here, the rain clouds are coming, and we might even be seeing some snow in the city. Enjoy a few events to keep the chill away, from classical concerts to a fairy tale land for you and your family!

The Vancouver Events Calendar has more.

Mystery Skulls with guests

  • What: American Indie pop/electronica Mystery Skulls play Vancouver tonight. Lead by talented young gun Luis Dubuc, years of hard work, self-belief, and courage have turned this group into a lean, mean, music machine.
  • Where: The Biltmore Cabaret – 2755 Prince Edward Street, Vancouver
  • When: Friday, December 4; Doors 7 p.m. / Show 8 p.m.

Christmas in the Orpheum

  • Where: The Orpheum – 601 Smithe Street, Vancouver
  • When: Friday, December 4; 8 p.m.

Trunk Puppet NOW

  • When: Friday, December 4; 8 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Enchanted Nights at Bloedel Conservatory
