About the Christmas Haven

You don't have to be alone...

Every Christmas Eve since 1998, a group of community minded volunteers organize a free, non-denominational, and wheelchair accessible Christmas Dinner, promoting a sense of belonging and camaraderie on a night that often brings hardship to those with little or no support. We are pleased that our event is growing annually and welcomes everyone who may not want to be alone at this time of year.

Christmas Haven is held at The ACT in downtown Maple Ridge from 6 pm to 9 pm every December 24th. This free event provides a wonderfully festive atmosphere for our guests and is the centre point for a dinner of turkey and all the fixings; local entertainment; children's activities; and a visit from Santa. No reservations are required.

The Christmas Haven is 100% volunteer driven, operated by a dedicated Steering Committee and is only made possible through the outstanding generosity of our Community.
