One of our favourite Winnipeg holiday events returns December 1 to January 6, 2018 (closed Christmas Day). Winnipeggers can enjoy beautiful lights at the Canad Inns Winter Wonderland! Gates are open from 6:00pm to 10:00pm.

Canad Inns Winter Wonderland, a Winnipeg family tradition, is a partnership with Red River Exhibition Park, offering our community a festive seasonal drive through light display each December and January. The display offers over one million lights and over 26 different themed areas during a 2.5 km drive in the comfort of your car. Along the route, you can stop at the outdoor skating rink to enjoy a family skate or undertake the free horse-drawn sleigh ride on weekends. Admission is by vehicle pass purchased in advance or at the gate.

It’s a great way to spend quality time with your family and celebrate the season of lights – 3 million watts of them!


  • Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays (weather permitting) come by for a complimentary sleigh ride, complete with built in fireplace. It’s completely enclosed and really cozy!
  • Come see the 75′ Christmas tree made out of almost 3,000 LED light bulbs!
  • As the weather gets colder, they’ll have a skating rink for use. It’s free with admission. Stay tuned for an opening date. Please bring your own skates – no skate rentals on-site. There is a warming hut to change shoes and skates.
  • Photo stop! Bring your cameras and take a holiday photo with your family and all of our holiday sculptures.
