The Royal BC Museum, with support from our partners, is proud to present the first annual WinterFest outdoor multicultural holiday market, December 2 and 3.

Celebrating arts, culture and community, WinterFest brings together the best parts of the holiday season. Food, warm drinks and multicultural performances pair with local vendors for a one-of-a-kind experience.

Music, dance, food and a market featuring the work of local artisans and sellers are set to make this a true celebration of the holiday season. Find the perfect gift for that hard to shop for someone on your list, get yourself a special treat, or grab a snack and stay for a show.
