The spirit of Christmas returns to Gastown with Yule Duel 2017, the only outdoor Christmas Carolling event in BC! Water Street will be transformed into an open air concert hall filled with holiday cheer, a live jazz band and over 20 entertaining musical performances by some of Vancouver’s most notable choirs.
Choirs will be setup along Water Street, performing a selection of holiday songs to entertain the crowd. Once the judges have made their rounds, festivities will shift to the main stage as teams compete in a final sing-off!
Yule Duel is a fundraising event for May’s Place, which provides compassionate end-of-life care to some of the most vulnerable people in the DTES.
