Calgary Is Hosting Canada’s Largest Indoor Light Park & Christmas Market This Year

Calgary’s most magical and spectacular indoor light park and Christmas festival is finally coming to town soon. The Noel Christmas Market will be the largest indoor light park and Christmas festival of its kind in Canada. The event is all set to host more than 90,000 Calgarians between Thursday, November 28 and Tuesday, December 31.

This brand new holiday festival will transform the 100,000+ square foot Nutrien Centre, located in the heart of the Stampede Grounds, into a spectacular holiday wonderland. This magical holiday must-see features nearly one million sparkling lights, festive food, and a lovely artisan market. Santa, Mrs. Claus and their reindeer will be there too.

This is an exciting 30-day long Christmas extravaganza that will run throughout November and December. You can get your tickets soon since they will be going on sale on Tuesday, October 15 at 10:00 MST.

Guests can not only enjoy the dazzling light displays but also festive food and drink, artisanal gifts, live music, entertainment and traditional carols. Plus, you can still keep warm inside an indoor venue. 

The event also features a Santa’s Village, and a walkable, fully licensed artisan vendor market. Noel Christmas Light Park also features an immersive 250-foot light tunnel, two 50 foot Christmas trees, larger than life arctic animals and other unique displays, illuminated with nearly one million twinkling bulbs.

“We are only two months away from sharing Noel Christmas Light Park with Calgary,” said Jonathan Houweling, Calgary resident and co-founder of Noel Christmas, in a press release.

“We’re also excited to announce a hiring fair, where we aim to hire approximately 100 Calgarians to help celebrate the holiday season,” said Houweling.

Noel Christmas is also currently accepting vendor applications for the market and details on the hiring fair will be released soon. If you are obsessed with Christmas, then you have to check out the Calgary Miracle Pop-up bar, too!
