Honda Celebration of Light
July 23rd, 27th, & 30th, 2022
The Honda Celebration of Light returns to English Bay for three fantastic nights on July 23rd, 27th and 30th, as Japan, Canada and Spain compete in this year’s fireworks extravaganza. With hundreds of thousands of people expected to join in the festivities, the West End will be busy and also impacted by various road closures from 7pm onwards. Click here to access the festival map.
As Lower Mainland residents and visitors begin planning their routes, festival organizers and Translink are teaming up to encourage attendees to take transit to this year’s event and utilize increased services.
We’re encouraging Metro Vancouverites to leave their car at home, and instead hop on transit, walk or cycle down to English Bay to help reduce vehicle congestion that could impede the movement of foot traffic during the fireworks festival.
