Squamish at Dusk brightens Rose Park this fall

The new lights festival will shine in the park on Thursdays to Saturdays in November and December.

A new lights festival is heading to Squamish this November and December.

Located at Rose Park, Squamish at Dusk will transform the park into a “magical wonderland of lights, featuring immersive environments” on Thursdays to Saturdays between Nov. 23 and Dec. 10.

“This family-friendly event will provide sought-after festive lights and a place to gather in the evening and enjoy hot chocolate and warmth during our dark, cold months. This year is a pilot year for an annual event that the organizers hope will grow each year if they receive strong support from the community,” reads a news release.

The event is put on by The Wilder, of Squamish, founded by Melanie Lazelle and Whistler-based Best Coast Lights owned by Alex Gorham.

The immersive Christmas and family-friendly experience will include a 60-foot tunnel of lights, sparkling trees and other light installations. The Adventure Centre will also be open for warmth and operate as a festive hub.

“We want to create a lights festival and winter wonderland for our community that everyone can be excited about attending every year. We would love for people to spend some time checking out the light art, enjoy festive favourites such as visits from Santa on Friday nights, and hang out for a while and enjoy a hot chocolate around the fire and something fun to do for all ages on a winter’s evening post-ski,” the release continued.

Tickets are already available for the event and can be booked every hour between 4 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Booking is available at

Tickets range from $10 to $15 for adults and $7 to $10 for kids, depending on the day. (3 and under are free).
