The Polar Bear Swim event, one of Vancouver’s most beloved New Years traditions, will go ahead on Sunday, January 1, 2023, for the first in-person swim in three years. This year, swimmers and spectators will be welcomed back to take their annual frigid swim in the waters at English Bay. The event will run from 12pm to 4pm, with the program beginning at 2pm, and the official swim at 2:30pm. The GVFB will be collecting donations on-site.
Registration is now open, and participants should register in advance to receive their participation certificate.
