The “Northern Lights Display”

BC Place is recognized around the world as a landmark of Vancouver’s skyline and a place of pride for all British Columbians. Adding to the excitement is “the Northern Lights Display”, which allows our stadium to “come alive” both inside and outside, enhancing the overall guest experience.

The Northern Lights Display has been used to create the world’s largest Union Jack to welcome Paul McCartney, a giant poppy to recognize Canada’s Veterans, and for countless events and charitable causes that have a positive impact in our community.

Lighting Schedule

BC Place is illuminated from 6am to sunrise, and from sunset to 11pm most nights. On event nights, the roof and Northern Lights Display are lit until the conclusion of the event.
