Alberta tends to get thrust into the holiday spirit earlier than the rest of the country because our snowy season just can't wait to start. So, if you're anything like us, you've probably been searching for enchanting Christmas events in Edmonton to put some of that spirit into action.
You can explore the stunning Japanese garden under the stars with twinkling lights and the dancing flames of thousands of candles all around you. You really don't know tranquillity until you take a stroll through a botanical garden at night by candlelight.
December 1 to December 31
The event runs every night from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. with the exception of December 25.
Tickets are $20 for adults and they sell out every single year, so be sure to scoop yours up if you know you want to attend.
There are staggered entry times so you can totally avoid crowds and have the serene walk of your dreams.
This year there is also a special dining experience if you want to elevate your evening.
The Northern Light Dining Experience is a special three-course meal with the garden walk included. We can't think of a better time to enjoy the stunning winter scenes and get in the holiday spirit.
When: December 1 to December 31, 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Address: The University of Alberta Botanic Garden
Why You Need To Go: Take an evening to unwind and be enchanted by a dreamy, candle-lit garden all covered in snow.
