Edmonton Will “Glow” A Little Brighter This Christmas Season

The biggest indoor Christmas festival in Edmonton will be opening its doors November 22, 2018 – January 19, 2019.

Originating in Langley, BC in 2017, Darvonda Nurseries turned its greenhouses into the ultimate indoor winter wonderland and experienced warm reviews and sold out days. Now Glow is spreading the joy across the country. So get ready Edmonton, Alberta, we’re ready to share the warmth of the season with you!

Hosted inside the Enjoy Centre, you’ll delight in everything you love about the holiday season, like twinkling lights, seasonal goodies and a Christmas market — but you don’t have to worry about chilling winds or soggy mittens. You’ll stay toasty as you stroll leisurely through this 64,000 square foot indoor Christmas festival.

To get you in the Christmas mood, you’ll enter through a 210-foot light tunnel along with 50,000 twinkling lights. Wander through the Christmas light garden with all your favourite traditional decorations. And there’s a surprise! Santa has lost his gifts and needs your help. Find all of his lost presents and earn a little present for you.

Christmas Glow will have silver bells ringing with two of the most iconic symbols of the holiday season: Jolly Saint Nick and lively music. Join Santa on his daily visit, and sit on his knee to whisper your Christmas wishes in his ear. Live entertainment from local musicians and choirs will have you rockin’ around the Christmas tree and singing fa-la-la-la-la!

Brilliantly decorated with half a million lights there are festive activities and interactive features for everyone to enjoy. The young and young at heart will love the giant LED swings that swoop like a snowflake and change red and green each time you give them a love tap. The tots can create their own magical adventure inside the gigantic castle playground, complete with seven slides, rope bridges and more. If you’re not up for scaling the castle walls, take a load off and hop aboard Glen the Glow-comotive!  

We ‘ho-ho-hope’ to fill rumbling tummies with seasonal treats to satisfy any salty or sweet craving. Christmas Glow will have delicious options and a licensed bar for some ‘big kid’ beverages. This Christmas festival will be stuffed with all the trimmings!

Our very special Glow Cups are de-LIGHT-ful and a festival favourite in the Glow Shop. You can also browse for unique gifts and decorations in the Christmas Market, featuring over 20 talented artisans and boutique businesses.  

Christmas Glow’s illuminated sculptures and backdrops are perfect for selfies and family holiday photos. Plan out your favourite shot and use it on your Christmas cards!

Speaking of planning, we’ve got a private party space if you’re planning a birthday, holiday celebration or corporate function. Contact the Christmas Glow elves on our website to help you build a memorable evening.
