Calgary, Canada:Experience the wonder and charm of an old-fashioned Christmas at Once Upon A Christmas, returning to Heritage Park Historical Village Saturdays and Sundays, November 22 until December 21, 9:30 a.m. until 4 p.m.
This time-honoured tradition is the perfect way to get into the true spirit of the holidays!
Start your day with our delicious Christmas Breakfast Buffet, served each day of the event in the Wainwright Hotel and Gunn’s Dairy Barn. Tickets for the buffet must be pre-purchased by calling 403-268-8500.
Take a festive horse-drawn wagon ride around the village then warm up by a crackling fire. Sing traditional carols in the cozy warmth of the little church and visit the historical homes decked out for season, including the brand new Famous 5 Centre of Canadian Women. Catch the entertaining holiday musical in the Canmore Opera house or join in a song or two with the costumed roving carolers. Enjoy Christmas model train displays, decorate gingerbread men and pick up one-of-a-kind gifts in the village and in the Haskayne Mercantile Block. Children can make holiday crafts, shop for Mom and Dad in our Kids Only Store with the help of a volunteer, and visit with Santa and his Christmas Farm Critters!
Capture your holiday memories with an antique portrait from the Park Lane Portrait Studio, now located in the heart of the historical village. The Portrait Studio is open weekends only during Once Upon A Christmas, and walk ups are welcome!
