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 for those that don't wish to be alone during the Christmas season. Our event welcomes families, seniors and individuals who are seeking a connection to the community 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.
