Celebrate Canyon Lights 2019 Capilano Suspension Bridge, A Winter Festival November 22, 2019 to January 26, 2020. Re-capture the feeling of wonder and excitement of the holiday season and be amazed by the hundreds of thousands of lights throughout the park. The suspension bridge, Treetops Adventure, Cliffwalk, the rainforest and canyon are transformed into a world of festive lights and visual enchantment.
Once again during the Canyon Lights 2019, the 30-ton Douglas firs of Treetops Adventure will receive star treatment. Treetops Adventure is a series of seven suspension bridges attached to eight 250 years old Douglas-firs with viewing platforms, reaching up to 110 feet above the forest floor. These magnificent Douglas firs will be lit above and below the collars, making these trees the eight tallest Christmas trees in the world!
Back by popular demand, go on a Snowy Owl Prowl, decorate gingerbread cookies (by donation) and sing-along carols with the holiday band. Another wonderful Christmas Event we recommend when it comes to festive lights is VanDusen Festival of Lights.

CAPILANO SUSPENIOS BRIDGE STORY
Native Vancouverite Nancy Stibbard purchased Capilano Suspension Bridge Park in 1983 and has spearheaded the attraction’s development and phenomenal success over the past 30 years. Nancy’s commitment to exceeding guest expectations and her vision to ‘create experiences people are amazed by’ guide every aspect of her businesses.
Nancy’s initial success came from retail, reworking the merchandise mix at Capilano Trading Post to include more Canadian-made products and upscale brands. She opened new stores in BC and Alberta, then purchased and rebuilt two luxury accommodation properties in the Canadian Rockies – Moraine Lake Lodge (1991) and Cathedral Mountain Lodge (2002). In 2014, Nancy added Stanley Park Pavilion and Prospect Point Cafe and Gift Shop to the Capilano Group portfolio. The Prospect Point property will be renovated in a way that enhances its function and its history, while the Pavilion has recently been restored to its former glory.
Ever wonder where the name Capilano comes from? It is actually a First Nations name belonging to the Squamish Nation and originally spelled Kia’palano, meaning “beautiful river”. Kia’palano was the name of a great Squamish chief who lived in this area in the early part of the 1800s. Over time “Kia’palano” was anglicized into “Capilano”: a word that has become the namesake of our bridge and park as well as the river and surrounding area.
