The Dundarave Festival of Lights is back for another season, offering festive, free concerts, a Christmas fair, and a Forest of Miracles.
The festival begins with a Christmas tree decorating beach party on Saturday, November 30, at Dundarave Beach.
You’ll be able to enjoy concerts in the Longhouse and the Nativity Pavilion for free, decorate the festival’s Christmas tree, and shop at the Christmas Fair.
Dusk will see the official lighting of the Festival’s Forest of Miracles, the largest outdoor display of Christmas trees in British Columbia.
It’s free to wander among the magical Christmas trees, which are decorated and sponsored to help raise funds to end homelessness.
The following week, on Saturday, December 7, you’ll be able to attend the Dundarave Nativity and Paddle Songs, featuring the ancient music of Squamish elders.
