Guelph Sparkles in the Park

Riverside Park, 709 Woolwich St, Guelph


Events Description

Our wonderful annual celebration is going ahead at Riverside Park for the 22nd year in a row, albeit a bit differently this year to increase safety for our visitors and the volunteers who make this signature Guelph event happen.
  • Sparkles 2020 will be a drive-through event, from December 19-31 each evening.
  • Visitors will be asked to stay in their cars and no walkabouts will be permitted, to increase safety and control the numbers in the park.
  • All displays will be moved closer to the roadway with increased visibility of signage.
  • We are working on a ‘pass’ for multiple entries.
  • Sadly, due to COVID-19 requirements, we will not have the usual New Year’s Eve fireworks and nor will the carousel be operating this year.
  • Rumours are that Santa will be present several times for the children young and old to view from the car.

Excellent sponsorship opportunities are available. Email for details.


Tickets: Free;

  • Cash and tap-donations at the gate will be accepted.
  • Online donations with tax receipts will be available.
