Holy mackerel, just over a week until Christmas, folks! Naturally, we’ve got a lot of seasonal options for our things to do round-up in Vancouver this weekend. Especially if (fingers crossed), we get to see a little bit of snow over the next few days. Not too much, though- we don’t want to be stranded picking up groceries or something.

Here are the 10 best things to do in Vancouver this weekend.

Shipyards Skate Plaza

Here’s something that’s more than worth the SeaBus over there. The Shipyards Skate Plaza, the largest ice skating surface in the region, has reopened for the winter! Take in gorgeous views of the city’s skyline and enjoy a bunch of nearby amenities. Plus, if you bring your own skates, it’s free!

When: Open throughout the weekend
Where: 125 Victory Ship Way, North Vancouver
Cost: Free to visit, $7 for rentals

Heritage Christmas

If you’re willing to drive a little bit, then the Heritage Village Museum in Burnaby is a great choice. Not only is this already impressive heritage village worth a trip in and of itself, but it’s been transformed for the holiday season with light installations. The best part? It’s free!

When: Open throughout the weekend
Where: 6501 Deer Lake Ave, Burnaby
Cost: Free to attend!

Vancouver Christmas Market

An absolutely classic holiday option, the Vancouver Christmas Market has got something for just about everyone. Enjoy some seasonal treats and drinks, browse the local vendors, and enjoy free live entertainment while you’re at it!

When: Open until December 24th
Where: Jack Poole Plaza
Tickets: $12.99+

Mount Seymour

The last of the Metro Vancouver mountains has opened for the season, folks! Mount Seymour waited a little bit longer to open, and we’re hoping that means they’ve got even more snow for you to zoom down on the weekend.

When: Open throughout the weekend
Where: 1700 Mount Seymour Road, North Vancouver
Cost: Varies

Lights to the Lodge

Maybe a full day of skiing isn’t really your vibe, but you still want to get outside this weekend. Another great option is the Lights to the Lodge, a snowshoe light walk that will have you exploring Cypress Mountain’s nordic area, their historic Hollyburn Lodge, and more!

When: Open throughout the weekend
Where: 6000 Cypress Bowl Road, West Vancouver
Cost: $28.80+

Imagine Picasso

Looking for an indoor option? This is a great idea. Imagine Picasso features a similar concept- showcasing an iconic artist in a unique and immersive fashion. This time around, expect an origami-like setting for the high definition projections.

When: Open throughout the weekend
Where: 1055 Canada Place
Tickets: $34.99

PNE WinterLights

The PNE’s drive-through holiday experience is back! Load up the car with friends or family and go enjoy nine different light display areas, ranging from ‘Polar North’ to ‘Santa Street’. Really kick of the festivity by grabbing a hot chocolate at the start of the experience, too.

When: Open throughout the weekend
Where: 2901 E Hastings Street
Cost: $37+ per car

VanDusen Festival of Lights

Well well well, if it isn’t our most consistent pick for things to do this month. What can we say? If we had to pick one holiday experience to check out in Vancouver, this would be it. The price is right, the setting is nice, and the lights are stunning!

When: Open throughout the week
Where: 5251 Oak Street
Tickets: $17.50

Eastside Flea Holiday Markets

If you’re still doing some holiday shopping, we’ve got a couple of options for you. This beloved collection of vintage curators and local artisans will be making a return just in time for the holidays. Not only is this a must-visit option for bargain hunters, but it’s also going to be open right up until the week before Christmas. Perfect for those looking for a last-minute gift.

When: December 18th and 19th
Where: 550 Malkin Ave
Cost: $2

Made in the 604

Not only does Made in the 604 find vendors that really represent the city (naturally), but they’ve also picked the best venue for their market on this list. Seriously, if you haven’t been to the Pipe Shop, then that’s reason enough.

When: December 18th and 19th
Where: 115 Victory Ship Way, North Vancouver
Cost: Free!

That’s what we’ve got in mind for this weekend, Vancouver!
