With thousands of twinkle lights, decorations, festive food, holiday shopping, and entertainment – it’s truly a Cowichan Christmas experience!
South Cowichan's Brightest Light-Up
Take an enchanting walk through our courtyard light-up, with thousands of twinking lights, decorations, and displays. Scroll to the bottom of this page for our holiday hours, as they vary slightly through the end of the year. Our full Christmas light display will be up until December 28. From December 29 through January 1, our large inflatables will be taken down, but the remainder of our display will remain in place. There is no charge to come and walk through our display.
