The holidays are here, and there is plenty to do in Calgary this holiday season. From a festive light display at the Calgary Zoo to a huge Christmas market with everything you could possibly imagine, there are so many ways to get in the holiday spirit. Check out this list of the top three ways to spend the holidays in Calgary in 2020.
Zoo Lights at the Calgary Zoo
Visit the top-rated Calgary Zoo this holiday season and enjoy Zoo Lights at the Calgary Zoo. This magical holiday event is on now until January 3, and will see over two million lights on display (some in the shape of zoo animals!). There will be over 200 displays in total, as well as warm fire pits and a family activity zone. Tickets start at $14.95 and can be purchased online.
Calgary Christmas Market
Shop locally this holiday season at the Calgary Christmas Market. This annual shopping event is on from November 12 until December 23 and will have everything you could possibly imagine. If you’re shopping for your Christmas Day meal, you’ll find fresh produce here as well as a food hall. Alternatively, if you’re looking for a last minute gift, the Calgary Christmas Market is the place to go. Local vendors are offering everything from jewellery to decor. In addition, the market hosts special events and activities, such as a visit from Santa and his reindeer. Christmas trees are also available at the Calgary Christmas Market.
Santa’s Holly Jolly Tree Farm
Santa is back at Southcentre Mall this holiday season, in the form of Santa’s Holly Jolly Tree Farm. Santa will be located on the upper level of the mall between November 13 and December 24. In order to keep everyone safe, masks will be required and there will be no direct contact with Santa this year. However, that doesn’t mean your child can’t pose beside and tell Santa about what they want for Christmas.
If you plan on visiting Calgary this holiday season, then you’ll want to reserve a room at the Days Inn by Wyndham Calgary Airport. We offer quality accommodation, top-notch amenities, and an unbeatable location right near some of the best Christmas attractions in the city.
