Bringing Festive Spirit into the Community

Introducing four nights of family fun. From 5-8pm on December 12+13, 19+20, experience carolling choirs, elves, mistletoe kissing stations, a gigantic holiday outdoor short film, candy canes, late night shopping, and other surprises for everyone and anyone to share.

Extended Shopping Hours
Retail Stores Throughout Gastown

We want to make the holiday shopping madness, less maddening by giving you more time to shop. Head to Gastown after work during our Gastown Nights to get that gift list done and to pickup a little something special for yourself – you may even catch some instore giveaways, promotions, and discounts during these nights.
Projection Mapping Video Art Installation
The Leckie Building (across from the Steam Clock)

Produced by Vancouver Film School, spectators can take a trip down memory lane with moving graphics, 3D animation, special projection techniques, and surround audio. The huge 120ft x 60ft video wall of the Leckie Building in Gastown will come to life with a two minute video playing every 30 minutes upon the chime of the Steam Clock.
#KissMeInGastown Mistletoe Scavenger Hunt
Locations to be released soon!
