Luminaria

Event at University of Alberta Botanic Garden





Tagged in: Christmas, Free, Weekend


Fire light. Star light. Snow light. Thousands of candles, millions of stars, and you.

This popular event ignites the festive season with thousands of candles along the paths of the Kurimoto Japanese Garden in a breathtaking display – a quiet oasis of peace and light. Visitors can count on their favorite elements: a stroll through the candle-lit pathways, hot apple cider beside the bonfires, ice sculptures, delightful "snow sprites" and the seasonal sounds of strolling a capella singers. Let the little ones run through the Snowlight Maze; make a wish and hang it on a Wish-Upon-A-Star Tree, enjoy hot food and beverage options. As always, a special Memory Lane will be available for visitors who would like to light a candle in honour of a loved one, by donation.

Advance tickets required.
