Enjoy the festive celebration of the holidays in Marpole, on Granville Street between 63rd and 71st Avenues.

Christmas in Marpole Village

The Marpole Business Association is continuing with the tradition of celebrating the holidays with our thirteenth annual Christmas in Marpole Village. This event is a month-long celebration of the holidays in Marpole, one which involves the entire community.

Festive winter-themed street banners are on display. Christmas lights are glowing in the street trees, and white lights twinkle on the lamp-posts. Santa Claus and the sound of strolling carolers and music will all contribute to a beautiful, holiday-inspired environment.

Please join in on some of the activities outlined below, and help make the holidays brighter for all of us. Our best wishes to you and yours for a wonderful and prosperous holiday season.

Holiday Caroling & Music

The Marpole BIA is pleased to have engaged the festive sounds of the Fandango Quartet again this year. The ladies will provide their wonderful & melodic holiday caroling along Granville St. on the Saturdays in December.

The jolly gentlemen of Santa’s Brass will also return to Granville St, playing seasonal tunes on all the Saturdays in December as well.

Thank you for making all of our entertainers feel warm & welcome when they pop into your business.

Santa Stroll

Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus will make a special appearance in Marpole on Saturday, December 23, 2017!

Between 12 noon and 3 PM, Santa will stroll Granville Street, stopping in shops and handing out candy canes. He may also take gift requests, but only if you’ve been nice!

Seasonal Lighting

The Marpole BIA has added some light strings to the street trees along Granville Street last year, making the
seasonal display even brighter.

Thank you to all of our Marpole Cares Sponsors!
