Christmas Events and Festivities
Ignite your festive spirit and watch the town of Banff come alive during the famous Santa Claus Parade of Lights. After the parade, check off your Christmas lists as you wander the decorated Banff Avenue to the sound of holiday carolers who will get you in the festive mood. The Banff Christmas Market is another great way to find one-of-a-kind treasures and enjoy festive entertainment and culinary delights.
With your Christmas shopping done, it’s time to give your feet a rest and experience the natural beauty of Lake Louise in a sleigh ride through fresh snow. When the sun goes down, the streets come alive as you indulge in an authentically Canadian meal with local produce, game meat, and craft beer all served by the crackling fire.
With the dip in temperatures and a dusting of snow, Banff National Park is transformed into a winter playground for everyone. Embrace the adventurous side of winter at one of the local ski resorts; Mount Norquay, Banff Sunshine, or the Lake Louise Ski Resort.
