A “Perennial” Favourite. From the end of November through the school winter break, Royal Botanical Gardens is home to all things holiday.  The celebrations are new and varied every year but special performances, hands-on activities, and Santa experiences are always part of the celebrations.

Don’t miss storytelling with Mrs. Claus, the special light displays at the Rock Garden and the Botanical Train Display, with 250 feet of track and famous Canadian landmarks made of cedar slabs and other natural materials. While you are visiting RBG Centre explore the outdoors and take a winter walk!
