Spirit Catcher Miniature
Train Travel through the forest on the Spirit Catcher miniature train and help Sasquatch - the supernatural protector of the forest – battle the Evil Chief who is over-harvesting berries and cedar. The story is acted out live by Aboriginal youth in outfits themed with the legends of the animals.
Visit the Artisan Marketplace and Métis Trading Post for handcrafted and authentic First Nations and Métis jewelry and art that make perfect souvenirs of your experiences at Klahowya Village. On weekends, watch the artisans as they give live demonstrations of their timeworn crafts.
From Thursday to Sunday, watch master First Nations carvers at work as they demonstrate the skillful techniques handed down from generation to generation for time immemorial, and create beautiful and colourful totem poles, masks and more.
Sasquatch Puppet Show
Featuring large, marionette-style puppets, the Sasquatch Puppet Show tells the story of a young Aboriginal girl living in a city who is disconnected with the traditions of her people – until she meets the Sasquatch who teaches her, and the audience, about nature, conservation and protecting the environment.
Klahowya Village is located right at the miniature train plaza in Vancouver’s Stanley Park – just north of the Stanley Park Pavilion and west of the Vancouver Aquarium. Parking is available just outside the west entrance of Klahowya Village. Please note that all parking in Stanley Park is pay parking. If you are traveling by public transportation, the #19 bus ends it route right at the west entrance to Klahowya Village.
