Blue Mountain Village celebrates the holiday season with over a million lights, entertainment and of course Santa. Never has that spirit been so beautifully presented as it is by Holiday Magic at Blue. The entire outdoor Village dressed up in garlands and bows. Find whimsical store fronts, colourful characters, glowing swings and magical moments around every corner. Take the family for a nostalgic stroll along charming cobblestone streets and through all the sights and sounds of the season.

The Coca-Cola Holiday Truck rolls into the Village and delivers some magic November 19th to kick off the season with featured entertainment, photos with Yeti, caroling, Santa on his sleigh, Ice Princess and more.

By day the Village sparkles with festive décor, holiday music and fires to warm by.  Evenings, starting at dusk, follow the one kilometre Holiday Light Trail through the Village and around the Mill Pond to discover enchanting and interactive light displays. You can be the maestro of the lights with your songs, sounds and good wishes of the season at the Dream Tree and Topsicle Forest. On week-ends, enjoy live holiday music, the new outdoor DJ Booth, street performers, warming stations and a horse drawn carriage with Santa roaming the Village. Saturday evenings end with fireworks over the Mill Pond November 19th – December 24th. Find all the details on our events calendar.

Look for those one-of-a-kind holiday finds at 24 shops and boutiques with everything from Christmas ornaments and home decor, fashion items to the latest outdoor active wear and gear, and specialty food items to beauty and spa products. Stores are open late 7 days a week for leisurely or last minute shopping, including Christmas Day.
