The month of Thanksgiving, pumpkins, cobwebs, and Halloween has arrived! The fog greets us in the morning, and darkness arrives earlier each evening. Vancouver flourishes in the Fall & Winter. There are dozens and dozens of family-friendly events waiting to entertain you and the kiddos in October!

Don’t forget to regularly check out our Ultimate Halloween Event Guide through the month of October. Events happen all month long and we are constantly adding new events to our guide.

The incomparable Fred Penner takes to the Orpheum stage with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra on Oct 3. What’s your favourite Fred Penner tune? Mine’s always been “Sandwiches”.

The 24th annual Cranberry Festival returns to historic Fort Langley (Oct 9). The pancake breakfast starts at 8am (cash-only). The festival is smaller for 2021 (can’t have 100,000 people showing up during COVID). Stock up on your Thanksgiving cranberries, table decorations and all-things Fall.

FlyOver Canada is celebrating the fun of Halloween by adding some spine-tingling entertainment to its popular, must-see attraction, HowlOver Canada (Sept 27 – Oct 31). Riders are invited to join Biker Mama the Witch on a Halloween flight ride that will be both unforgettable and full of fun!

Imagine Van Gogh has been extended once again! The wildly popular, immersive art experience now runs until October 31. We visited during the summer and were truly wowed by the whole-body experience. Seeing famous artwork 7m tall is actually a truly breathtaking experience.

Come experience Vancouver Aquarium’s Fin-tastic Fall Days (Oct 1-31) Immerse yourself in the brand-new SCOOB! 4D Experience® movie, try tasty fall treats, and explore alongside the 65,000 amazing animals. Get into the spirit of the season when you navigate their Trick-or-Trout Maze and participate in Dress-Up Days during the Halloween weekend!
