Dundarave Park

From the first Christmas in West Vancouver to this season of the Dundarave Festival of Lights, bonfires have burned bright on our beaches to ward off the longest nights of the year and gather together our community in a spirit of friendship. These fires have deepened our sense of belonging, celebrating the life of our community as we face the winter together in this place of exceptional beauty. This night, crowned by a bonfire presented as it has for generations by the District of West Vancouver, is the ultimate night in the Festival’s season. We turn our faces together to the sunset, knowing that darkness will not have the last word even as the nights grow longest because loving friendship endures; we stand together at Dundarave Beach to make sure no one is left out and alone in the cold. This is the moment to bring with you everyone you love for a loving Christmas that starts here, deep in a forest of trees shining, festive and bright on Dundarave Beach.

Presented by VPG Reality Inc, in honour of North Shore Rescue.

“North Shore Rescue has always been about community,” said Mike Danks, NSR Team Leader. “Everyone saw the reality of this at the beginning of the year — the way everyone rallied around us as we mourned the loss of our leader and inspiration, Tim Jones. It means so much to us to end the year like this with the Dundarave Festival, because it allows us to celebrate the heart and strength and compassion that are deep in the DNA of our community.”

Whole Foods Market will be serving up a feast of love. Come hungry.
