The Woodward’s Windows will be on display as part of Christmas at Canada Place, presented by Port of Vancouver. The Windows are located along The Canadian Trail at Canada Place and will be on display until December 31, 2017.
The Woodward’s Windows are a treasured part of Vancouver’s history. Originally displayed in the popular Woodward’s department store, the windows featured classic holiday scenes with animated characters and elaborate decor. Handcrafted in the 1960s, the displays included The Candlestick Factory, Santa’s Workshop and The Lamplighter. Following the closure of the Woodward’s department store, Canada Place purchased the displays in 1993 and has continued to incorporate them into the Christmas at Canada Place experience. The Woodward’s Windows offer nostalgia for those who remember seeing them displayed in the store and excitement for those seeing them for the first time.
