Fun for the whole Family
Family Zone has moved from the ice rink level to the former Howe Street Bistro location and will provide families convenient access to food trucks, a sitting area, the artisan market and level access to stages on either side of the Art Gallery.
Families can also participate in all kinds of activities at the Family Zone or relax at the TD Comfort Zone.
The Howe Street Bistro has relocated to Robson Street to allow our bistro patrons to watch live entertainment on the Robson Stage while relaxing and enjoying refreshments.
NEW! Silent Dance Party
Those in the mood can shake it up with our rotating DJs during the Silent Dance Party presented by Sennheiser.
NEW! TIME (Tonal Interactive Media Experiment)
Also new this year is TIME (Tonal Interactive Media Experiment) at the ice rink level - Robson Square. TIME is an interactive installation designed to explore some of the more innovative uses of the guitar effects pedal. These tactile and enticing machines are a clear link between the themes of sonic and visual art. Developed in collaboration with Creative BC and the British Columbia Arts Council.
