Shine Bright Downtown this winter! 


As we approach the darkest days of the year, we are calling on you to Shine Bright with us. Downtown New West will be doing our part shining extra bright for 2022.

Find new and exciting lighting installations, elevated shopping experiences, plus plenty of events & specials at local businesses throughout December and January.

Bundle up to come discover the bright lights in Downtown New West. While exploring make sure to pop into the local businesses for drinks, shopping or just to say hi. 

Our gorgeous lights will be up until January 31st, and we’ve added a fantastic new art installation in the windows of 502 Columbia Street. This project was done in partnership with STEPS Public Art, an award-winning cultural organization in Ontario that creates one-of-a-kind public art plans, installations, and engagement strategies.  The installation on Columbia Street is STEPS’ inaugural piece in British Columbia. It was conceptualized and executed by local artists Komal Saxena (@perfectimperfectart) and Mikayla Seaton (@alpineartistry_).


Shine Bright Downtown is presented by the Downtown New West BIA in partnership with the City of New Westminster and the Motion Picture Community Initiative. Shine Bright New West is a city wide initiative, see more here.
