Vancouver's Preeminent Spectacle of Holiday Magic
Friday November 27th, 2015 – Thursday December 31st, 2015

So What Exactly is the SOS Children's Gingerbread Village?

 
The Spirit Gallery at Grouse Mountain, the Peak of Christmas, will be transformed into a winter wonderland with a collection of enchanting gingerbread houses making up a 'Gingerbread Village', and thousands of Peak of Christmas visitors will stroll through the gallery and vote on their favourite gingerbread house. Each festive house is sponsored by a local company, service club, or association, all in support of our charity work.

These sweet creations are truly works of art and local culinary experts spend hours upon hours perfecting the astonishing detail in the variety of jaw-dropping houses that make up the village. That's why our festival is Vancouver's preeminent spectacle of holiday magic!

Every year for the past 21 years, SOS Children's Village BC has presented a memorable Christmas event to the world featuring a Holiday Gala and accompanying festivities. This has been made possible thanks to generous sponsorship and in-kind support from individuals and corporations, like you, who are committed to enhancing the development and healing of foster children in our Village and vulnerable youth in our community.

Contact Marilyn Madden, Director of Corporate and Major Donor Stewardship, at marilynmadden@sosbc.org or
(604) 574-2964 ext. 228 to inquire about sponsoring one of the amazing gingerbread houses this year.

This year Global BC is our exciting new media partner for the SOS Children's Gingerbread Village. We also have Immediate Images as our new digital billboard sponsor, with advertising to appear at the Alex Fraser Bridge and Massey Tunnel. The exposure of the event will be unprecedented. Over $530,000 has been raised over the years from these Christmas events to help local children and youth.

 
Vote for Your Favourite Gingerbread House and Take a Photo with Santa!

 
The festival is open to the public daily from 10am to 10pm and SOS Children’s Village BC invites you to visit the SOS Children’s Gingerbread Village with the family and marvel in the wondrous spirit of giving! Photos with Santa in his workshop are by donation, with all proceeds supporting our specialized services for foster children and for homeless youth struggling to live independently.

You'll see the sparkling lights of the Gingerbread Village as the Skyride pulls into the station at the top of beautiful Grouse Mountain. Access to our winter wonderland is through the gift shop. The smell as you enter the area is undeniably sweet and heavenly! Check out each and every fantastic miniature house and cast your vote. One look at the children's faces as they wander through the Village looking at the incredible detail of the creations will leave you with holiday memories to cherish for a lifetime.
