What's New
New Westminster illuminated this December with the return of Shine Bright New West

We're excited to present the fourth annual Shine Bright New West, with an entire month of events and activities starting December 1, 2023. This three-time award winning event features over 40 experiences this year, including the new and notable Wishing Tree charity interactive display and Snowflake Spectacular music and dance performances.

The Wishing Tree in Moody Park is presented in partnership with BC Parks Foundation, and contributes towards the 25 x 25 campaign, which aims to raise enough funds to protect 25 percent of Canada’s land and sea by 2025. For every wish made at the Wishing Tree (or online), $10 will be donated towards the campaign. Join the Lighting Ceremony on December 1, 5:00 – 8:00 pm, for giveaways, warm beverages, fire pits, and live entertainment.

Held in the newly revitalized Uptown Plaza, the Snowflake Spectacular is a free public event presented in partnership with Small Stage and Uptown Business Association. It features live music and dance, a snow globe display, snowflake crafts, and more. There are two opportunities to enjoy this event, on December 8 and 15, 5:00 – 8:00 pm.
