Love dance? Check out both the Royal City Youth Ballet and AzestA Ballet performances.  It will be sure to rekindle your Christmas Spirit for the coming Holidays.


  • Why not start a new family tradition and join Santa Claus on the show floor for an opportunity to take your own pictures. Santa will be available for photos each day so do not forget your camera or smart phone and take a selfie with Santa!


  • Turns out that Santa’s Elves have been especially busy creating fun activities for Santa’s Workshop. Do not forget to stop by and create your very own free Christmas Ornament, with the help of our Elves.   Your very own Christmas art!


  • While at the show you can stroll through a wonderful array of decorated Christmas trees, all part of the Festival of Trees where charitable organizations will decorate trees and compete for a grand prize. Be sure to vote for your favourite tree as part of The Peoples Choice Award!


  • There will be many opportunities at the show to Pay It Forward while fulfilling your Christmas shopping list. Many of your Christmas purchases can help improve our world, by shopping among the gathering of community minded who are committed to giving back. Fair trade, zero waste and community support through giving back are all components of this feature area. Whether the artisans focus is to go green by limiting their use of plastic and toxic materials, or the focus is empowering a community through fair trade items, you will find a way to connect to your global community this Christmas.  Shop for your Christmas gifts here and find a better way to shop and spread joy worldwide this Christmas season.
