This Christmas, walk, dance, sing, drive and volunteer!

December 21, 2018

Nutcracker, Shumka style

A truly Edmonton Nutcracker, this holiday classic is produced and performed by local artists. This luxurious and uniquely powerful production features ballet, folk and character dance in a celebration of Tchaikovsky's beloved score, and runs on December 22 and 23.

Sing in the rain (surrounded by snow)

Watch the "Greatest Movie Musical of All Time" faithfully and lovingly adapted by Broadway legends, Betty Comden and Adolph Green, from their original award-winning screenplay in Singin' in the Rain, until December 30, at Festival Place.

Take a Muttart Light Walk

Experience magic as you walk through the Temperate Pyramid at the Muttart Conservatory. There will be a variety of light installations that will light up the space and transform it into a winter wonderland. Check out the illuminated sights until December 27.

Spin your wheels in a winter wonderland

Spread some Christmas cheer to the less fortunate
