Once again we are excited to partner with the Sun Peaks Grand Hotel to bring some holiday excitement to our village.

This year there will be lots to see and do! Enjoy festive lights and music, watch some amazing ice carvers, visit our expanded Artisan Market, taste some authentic maple taffy made right on the snow, sneak a peak at some fabulous ginger bread houses and be entertained by some special performers.

Don’t miss your chance to get those pictures taken with Santa!
