January 2023 Highlights

January is always a much quieter month than December. There are still lots of things to do, however, at least in years when COVID doesn’t shut everything down.

In early January there are still ongoing Christmas activities like Canyon Lights, the Festival of Lights at VanDusen Garden, Lights at Lafarge and Lights on the Lake. In 2023 there is also the Beyond King Tut exhibition which runs until the second week of the month.

On January 1st there are Polar Bear Swims at English Bay, White Rock and other communities. The free ice skating at Robson Square and the Shipyards in North Vancouver also continue all month and into February.

Other highlights of the month include the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival, Vive les Voyageurs French Canadian Festival, and Dine Out Vancouver Festival. There are also the Vancouver Chilly Chase running races, concerts with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, Robbie Burns Day events, and the Whistler Pride and Ski Festival. Some years there is the Vancouver Motorcycle Show, although not in 2023.

Lunar New Year takes place either this month or in February each year. When it happens in January, like it does in 2023, there is the Chinese New Year Parade, Vancouver Lunarfest, and other events.

Other fun activities to do in January are outdoor adventure games with Vancouver Mysteries and scavenger hunt games with Foxtrail. There are also snow sports at Lower Mainland Ski Hills.
