Family Holiday Events in Chestermere

There are lots of fun family holiday activities during this time of year in Chestermere and Calgary. Here are just a few fun things to do throughout November and December.


Winter Lights Festival

On November 24, celebrate Winter and the lighting of the Christmas lights display in John Peake park. There will be yummy food and holiday treats and you’ll be able to enjoy the warmth of the fire pits. There will also be train and sleigh rides!


Kids Holiday Store

Mark your calendars for December 15. Each child can prepare their shopping list before entering the store, then each child is paired with a store elf to choose presents for their loved ones. Every $5 gift purchased means $5 is going back into the community! These funds help residents throughout Chestermere from basic needs to school supplies.


Zoo Lights

Although this event isn’t in Chestermere, it is a short drive to the Calgary. This tradition is a favourite for many in the city and surrounding areas. Enjoy millions of bright and colourful lights. There will also be ice skating, visits with Santa Claus, and a rejuvenated Kids Zone. Zoo lights is on from November 23 until January 5 from 6-9pm.


We hope this post gives you some great ideas for family fun this holiday season. What are some of your favourite activities to participate in the Winter?
