Christmas in Calgary
It truly is the most wonderful season of all and its full steam ahead for the holiday season here in Calgary. Some of our very favourite Christmas events are starting up again so if you want to make the most of this holiday season, read on for a few of our favourite things.
🐯Embrace Your Inner Child at Zoo Lights🐯
Nothing takes you back to childhood wonderment quite like ZooLights. If it isn’t already a tradition for you and your family, we really encourage you to spend a night this year taking it all in with a warm cup of hot cocoa. It run November 23rd - January 5th and is sure to get you in the Holiday spirit.
🎄Get the Shopping Done at Calgary Christmas Markets🎄
We’re big on supporting local businesses, especially through the holiday season when we’re trying to find one-of-a-kind gifts for the people we love. What better way to do that than at a Christmas Market full of local artisans? Daily Hive put together a great list of what markets are coming up this holiday season, so make sure you check them out. You may even see one of the Burgundy Boys around. (Hint: Check out Spruce Meadows Christmas Market!)
🚂All Aboard the Polar Express🚂
It’s a complete transformation at Aspen Crossing over the holidays as you experience the Polar Express in real life, complete with a greeting from Santa Clause! Carolling is taken to a whole new level and word on the street is, it’s even better if you dress in your comfiest of pyjamas!
🚗And When All Else Fails🚗
Take a drive! Calgarians know how to dress their house up for the holidays. In just a few weeks, there will be some spectacular light displays around the city. So, when you’re feeling down, or just need an added dose of spirit, buckle up and see if you can find the best display in the city. And if you do, let us know! We want to see them too!
These are just a few of our favourite things happening in Calgary this holiday season, if we missed some of your favourites, let us know. And, if you need any ideas for gifts, our stave engravings are always a hit! If we don’t have the quote you’re looking for, ask about our custom engravings!
