Events Description

The Winter Lights Festival is back to bring light and joy to Southern Alberta through the darkest months! Join us and experience the illumination of over 150,000+ lights decorating the beautiful Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden.

Shop for unique gift items at the Visitor’s Centre Gift Shop.

The Garden is particularly fragile during the winter months because branches can break easily in the cold temperature. The Garden’s maintenance staff works incredibly hard on these living pieces of art. We ask that all guests stay to paths and designated areas, and to not touch or pull on vegetation.

Please be courteous so that all guests may enjoy the Garden and the lights. Please no running on paths and be mindful of blocking paths and areas.
