If you're ready to dive head-first into the holiday spirit, we've got just the thing. The iconic Fairmont Banff Springs will be transformed into a spectacular Christmas castle for another year of unforgettable holiday moments. The Banff Springs Christmas festivities kick off on November 15 and go all the way until January 5, 2020.
The majestic hotel will be decorated from top to bottom for the holidays and there will be tons of events and activities taking place daily. Stepping inside the Banff Springs Hotel is an experience on its own, let alone when it's decked out for Christmas.
The Banff Springs opened its doors back in 1888 and has been one of Banff’s key attractions ever since. People travel from around the world to visit the hotel. Around the holidays, the Fairmont's castle-like splendour is greater than ever.
Each year, they host Christmas in the Castle, which is a series of activities and special events surrounded by beautiful decorations, including tons of exquisitely-decorated Christmas trees, a gingerbread replica of the Banff Springs, and more.
You don't need to stay at the hotel to enjoy the holiday vibes. You can simply pop by, explore, and get some photos in any of the beautiful corridors or grand rooms.
If you're a lover of activities, there is no shortage of things to do. There will be massive Christmas markets kicking off on November 15 where you'll find unique local vendors, artists, and artisans selling the perfect Christmas gifts for anyone on your list.
Once we get into December, each day is jam-packed with things to do. There are guided hikes, crafting workshops, high tea, live music, movie screenings, campfires, games, and so much more.
You could spend the entire month of December at the Banff Springs without getting bored for a single second.
If you’re a more traditional Christmas type, you’ll be happy to hear that a theatrical version of A Christmas Carol will be showing on multiple dates throughout December.
If you’re just in it for the food and drinks, you won’t be disappointed. There are holiday brunches, festive Christmas high tea, and tons of lounges to sip on seasonal drinks.
The holiday season always seems to come and go before you have a chance to fully settle into the Christmas spirit, but not this year. Christmas at the Castle makes for adorable holiday dates or for some fun in Alberta with your friends or family.
You'll find us by the campfire.
