Where holiday magic comes to life
This holiday season, Hastings Park/PNE will be transformed into a magical winter wonderland. Experience Canada’s Largest Winter Festival. Escape to a hidden village with a beautiful skating rink, a tube park, massive light displays, a Christmas Market, amusement rides, food gardens, magical characters, and plenty of other exciting activities.
After 30 great days, the inaugural Aurora Winter Festival at the PNE will close for the 2019 season at 8pm on December 31st.
Originally planned to run until January 5th, guest feedback and post New Year’s Eve advance ticket sales confirmed this is a pre- and immediately post-holiday experience. That, combined with inclement weather forecasted for the five event days in January, prompted organizers to close on the 31st. Event organizers thank the many guests who attended this year’s event and confirm planning will now begin on the 2020 Aurora Winter Festival.
