4:00 PM to 9:00 PM

All aboard a 1910 steam locomotive through thousands of twinkling lights adorning the 100 acre woods of the BC Forest Discovery Centre for the Christmas Express. Thousands of visitors over the years have made a Christmas tradition of attending this colourful and entertaining event.

“We love bringing the Christmas Express out and seeing the magic of the holiday in the faces of everyone that attends. Our attendance has been growing, so we are hoping to exceed previous attendance this year with 12 nights of holiday magic. We invite islanders to come out to see the light displays, enjoy the seasonal music, make a Christmas craft, and ride the Christmas Express train” says Chris Gale, Manager of the BC Forest Discovery Centre.

You'll be able to keep warm with hot chocolate, and turkey soup that we've added to our other fare in the concession. If you follow the aroma you'll find our newest addition, the Island Mini Donut Stand!

Avoid line-ups by purchasing advance tickets in our Gift Shop. Open Monday to Wednesday from noon - 4pm, November 23rd until December 16th. Purchase an annual membership for 2016, a perfect gift for holiday shopping.

The Christmas Express event is a huge undertaking and largely driven by ‘volunteer elves’. The BC Forest Discovery Centre enjoys the support of so many ‘volunteer elves’ from the community who work along side the staff to ensure the lights are hung, they deck the halls including showcasing our buildings and artifacts to give the museum and our forest that magical festive look.

The Christmas Express is the museum’s largest fundraiser of the year and is paramount to the ongoing operation and maintenance of our antique vehicle collection, our trains, maintenance of the historical buildings and the preservation of an important ecosystem within the Cowichan Region.

Families and corporations can support the museum by attending the event, booking a Christmas Express Office Party, or by purchasing a membership for the 2016 season. Experience the magic of the BC Forest Discovery Centre aboard the Christmas Express!
