Alight at Night

Eastern Ontario’s Biggest Outdoor Light Festival

Bundle up for an evening stroll through this picture-perfect postcard setting! Close to one million lights adorn the heritage buildings, trees, and fences of Upper Canada Village creating a one-of-a-kind magical backdrop for its annual Alight at Night Festival - a true winter wonderland!

Hop on board a horse-drawn wagon, or book a romantic carriage ride for two. Sing along with the carolling at Christ Church. Visit Saint Nick at his Victorian-style mansion (select evenings). Ride with the kiddies on a life-sized toy train and vintage merry-go-round. Enjoy festive dining at three licensed restaurants on site. Shop at the Village Store, featuring fresh-baked bread and cinnamon buns from the Village Bakery.

"This was my 6th visit to this event. It is a wonderful way to see Upper Canada Village in the winter."


"This is a family favorite as far as experiences go. The kids love the lights and the wagon ride and it's nice to look around in the gift shop at the end of it all. I found the prices in the shop rather high this year."


"The lights of the village over the Christmas Holliday is amazing. So much work , so well done. The kids love it and of course seeing Santa. Well worth making the trip with the family every year."
