Calling all Christmas lovers! We invite you to join us for a magical night full of festive wonder at our second annual Big White Christmas Eve Festival. 

Christmas is our favourite time of year at Big White, and the Christmas Eve Festival is the perfect way to celebrate with your family and friends. Big White's newest tradition sees the Village come alive with holiday-inspired activities and – of course – Christmas lights!

You might even spot Santa before he heads off on a trip around the world. 

Come join us in the village from 4:30pm - 6:30pm for all the fun, including our annual Christmas Eve Service, live music from Jeff Piattelli, festivities, stories with Santa's elves, fireworks and more!

Getting too cold outside? Come inside the Village Centre Mall and enjoy a warm hot chocolate or a Christmas treat from Clocktower Coffee Co.
