The Dundarave Festival brings you Christmas as you’ve never seen it before, fabulously festive and absolutely free in the Festival Longhouse and Nativity Pavilion. Surrounded by a forest of Christmas trees, the only one like it in coastal British Columbia, you and everyone you love can connect with the bright spirit of the season as we approach the longest night of the year. From the ground breaking music of local songwriters to the ancient songs the ancestors of the Squamish Elders sang on these shores for thousands of generations, the Dundarave Nativity & Paddle Songs brings you a loving Christmas.

The origins of the Dundarave Nativity remain a mystery. Carved of old growth cedar, this setting depicting the first Christmas has been at the centre of the season in West Vancouver for generations. The carvings show the serenity and universality of that moment, in faces composed to evoke the features of an Aboriginal Holy Family with Angel, Shepherd and Kings of every race. The original carvings have been painstakingly restored by Master Carver Bill Seminoff. Over hundreds of hours, Bill has made this a labour of love, working to the completion of the setting with a new figure, King Melchior, in the Festival’s last season. This season he will unveil the latest addition to the Dundarave Nativity. The new carvings have been made possible through the generous gift of two tons of red cedar from Timberwest.

The Elders of the Squamish Nation return to the Dundarave Festival to show their love for the Dundarave Nativity, and to bless the Festival with paddle songs and traditional dances. Join Master Storyteller Wendy Charbonneau in the Dundarave Nativity Pavilion to experience first-hand the power of a deep spiritual connection to this beach and this season.
