Everyone has at least one holiday tradition they do every year! Some may have a favourite movie to get them in the spirit or decorating the house a certain day. Here at Tourism Langley, we have a lot of holiday traditions around the Office. We wanted to share some of our favourite traditions for the season!

Holiday Drinks

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Shopping & Services, Wine & Food

We welcome the Holiday Season with open arms! I am a huge fan of the holidays, family comes home for Christmas or around the Christmas break, it’s my favourite time of the year, plus you get to enjoy holiday food and drinks! Just recently, our family has started a tradition, now that mostly everyone is over the age of 19, that on Christmas Day, you have to bring a new drink for everyone to try. Last year, everyone either got their thinking caps on or like me searched through Pinterest. By the time Christmas Day rolled around, we were trying different drinks from Stormy night to Cranberry martinis!

Trading Post Brewing

Category: Wine & Food

Trading Post: a small establishment in which people gather where local goods are traded and stories from the trail can be shared.

Throughout history, breweries have been a fundamental part of the communities they serve. Langley’s newest craft brewery, Trading Post Brewing is no different. This modern day craft brewery is here to serve the community through their passion to create great beer. Their motto, “Tap into the Local” is the foundation of how Trading Post Brewing conducts their business. Everything they do is geared to draw from, and give back, to the very community where they live and work – Langley.

Visit Langley’s 9 Wineries & 2 Breweries!

Category: Wine & Food

In 1975, Claude and Inge Violet, having sold their winery and vineyard in France decided to start afresh in the New World. The pioneer spirit was not new to the Violet blood line as Claude’s family had been in the wine business since 1644. After visiting California, Ontario and the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Claude and Inge purchased the land where the present site of the Chaberton Estate Winery and the Bacchus Bistro are located.

Recommendations for how to spend a winter day in Langley, British Columbia

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Agritourism, Itineraries, Wine & Food

Winter is a magical season that, although it often doesn’t seem like it, doesn’t actually begin until the winter solstice on December 22nd. Generally, as soon as Halloween is over, and our pumpkins begin to rot, we change gears and plow head-first into the holiday season.

Cozy Cafes in Langley, B.C.

Categories: Shopping & Services, Wine & Food

I can’t believe it’s already November! Where did October go? The start of November means two things, Christmas is around the corner and the rainy season is upon us. If you are like me, I love warm drinks and colder/rainier weather calls for that! Nothing is better, than sitting in a cozy café watching the rain come down, with some of your girlfriends or on a date. We are lucky in Langley to have some great cozy café’s for just that. I have put together a list of cafes from all around Langley that will make you want to explore for yourself!

Halloween Events & Traditions

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Agritourism, Heritage & Culture, Wine & Food

Halloween is a time to dress up as your favourite character. Costumes range from a Disney Princess, Superhero to a Minion. It is also a time to get scared out of your skin from the haunted houses you go to or scary movies you watch! As I little girl, I always loved dressing up. For a couple years in a row, I was a black cat. Why two years in a row as a black cat? I just loved being a black cat so why not wear it as many Halloween’s as possible!

Laurica Farms

When Cathy Finley and her family moved to a five-acre farm in Langley, the plan was a change of pace—not a total change of career. But two years later she’s left her job in social work and is just trying to keep up with the growth of her new family business, Laurica Farm.

Recommendations for how to spend an autumn day in Langley, British Columbia

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Itineraries, Shopping & Services, Wine & Food

September 23rd is the fall equinox. I await this day with anticipation every year. It’s the day that I can begin enjoying all things autumn-related, without being judged by my friends. “The PSL comes out way too early”, “It’s not pumpkin season yet”, “Boot weather isn’t for another month”, “Why don’t you wait until Thanksgiving to make pie” are some of the comments they make. For a reason that I cannot fathom, they just don’t understand fall like I do.
