You may be thinking it's too early to be talking about winter, but honestly it's never too early to start preparing for a holiday season full of brilliant lights and holiday cheer! There's already a bunch of amazing festivals that celebrate Christmas and all the great things that come with it here in Ontario like the TO Christmas Festival at the Distillery District, the Niagara Falls Festival of Lights, and Winterlude in Ottawa and so many others.
Joining the mix of holiday events this year is a brand new winter festival called the Aurora Winter Festival. They're creating a magical hidden holiday village that will make you feel like you were transported straight to the North Pole.
The Aurora Winter Festival will be opening on Wednesday, November 28th and will run through the entire holiday season. This enchanting new attraction will have a whole lot to keep you busy including a skating pond, a Christmas market, art installations, winter themed rides, delicious food and drinks and so much more!
You can expect this magical Christmas village to pop up in Bandshell Park which is located inside the Exhibition Grounds. While they haven't released any photos of the festival yet since it's brand new, instead they've created a 3D map that will give you an idea of how massive and exciting this event will be!
You can begin purchasing tickets sometime near the end of September/early October. Make sure you check out their website so you don't miss out!
