Grab your mitts, skates and loved ones for a cozy evening at the Chestermere Winter Lights Festival on November 26!

Traditionally a January event, Chestermere’s annual Winterfest has been redeveloped to celebrate the official lighting of the Christmas display in John Peake Park.

“We are very pleased to unveil Chestermere’s redeveloped winter celebration,” said Nancie Huneault, Events Coordinator for the City of Chestermere. “This is a brand new way to brighten up a dark winter evening and we hope everyone will come out to celebrate the season!”

Celebrations will begin at 4 p.m. with a wide range of activities including:

  • A craft market at the Library
  • Children’s activities at the Library
  • Fire performers
  • Fire pits
  • Food trucks
  • Little toot train rides for kids
  • Musical performances from Chestermere High Schools Bands
  • Skating (a new outdoor rink is being created for the occasion)
  • Sleigh rides

At 6 p.m. the Christmas lights display will officially be lit to illuminate the community with cheer all through the winter months. The evening will end with fireworks on the lake at 8 p.m.

Huneault hopes this event helps families embrace the colder months. “Winter is a beautiful time of year and we hope that this festival helps the community experience it in a new way!”
