The GOODS from Truffles Fine Foods

Vancouver, BC | The dazzling lights, the music, and the warm comforting smells of the holidays — tis’ the season! That time of year has arrived yet again. Christmas time always quickly approaches after Thanksgiving, and that’s when busy workers and countless volunteers are in the garden preparing for the Festival of Lights. This year, the Festival takes place from December 10th to January 4th from 4:30pm to 9pm.

With twinkling trees and charming music filling the crisp air, the Festival of Lights is a great way to spend an evening with family and friends. And while the garden is glowing at every corner, we worked up some special treats for you to enjoy while roaming the grounds. We will be serving these items at our pop-up cafe outside:

Fresh Popcorn $4.00
Homemade Chili $5.50
BBQ Smokies $7.00
Signature Hot Chocolate $4.50 small $5.25 large
Gourmet Soup $4.50

And you can still find our regular hot and cold menu items as well as alcoholic beverages available in our café. The regular café hours will be:

3-4:30pm closed
4:30- 9pm (open for patrons of Festival of Lights only)

*Note: December 19th- 23rd garden is open until 10pm?Closed Christmas day

We look forward to seeing you at VanDusen Garden’s Festival of Lights 2014.
