If you prefer, you can also walk the route, and enjoy the beautiful colours up close.  Fill your hearts with festive cheer as the sights and sounds of the holidays transport you to a magical winter wonderland.

Keeping with tradition of the season, Spruce Meadows offers one of the best outdoor skating rinks in Calgary. For a romantic evening, park in lot 4 and surprise your sweetie with a dreamy skate under the moonlight. Or, bring your buddies, skates and sticks, for a good ol’ game of Shinny. Bon Fire pits are set around the rink to warm spirits and even the rosiest of cheeks

After an amazing season of top sport in show jumping and a successful International Christmas Market, presented by TELUS, Spruce Meadows is delighted to begin December by presenting this annual holiday masterpiece with fun and games for all!
