The Yaletown Business Improvement Association is proud to announce the 3rd annual free outdoor Christmas festival – Candytown. Last year, an estimated 15,000 people came out to Candytown to kick off the holidays.

Holiday shoppers are invited to start their seasonal gift buying in Yaletown with local merchants as well as a specialty market carrying unique gifts and holiday treats. You’ll also find Mainland Street filled with local artisans, street performers and live music.

This outdoor Christmas festival is free, open to the public and sure to get people into the Christmas spirit.

Feedback from Candytown

“[CandyTown] was loads of fun and we thoroughly enjoyed being there.  I hope it is a yearly event for you as I think everyone we spoke with was having a good time.” - Marg A.

“As a small business, having the opportunity to reach new markets and be exposed to such a diverse crowd as we saw last weekend is invaluable. Every aspect of Candytown, from the coordination to the support staff, was great.  And of course, the weather! We could not have asked for more!” – Rossana A.

“THANK YOU for organizing such an awesome Winter event for Vancouver. Our family had a memorable time yesterday. The ice skating, the reindeer, Santa, the food vendors, the dancing mascots and ice sculpture, everything was just wonderful!” - Sharon C.
