Event Website

5:30 pm to 10 pm

Your free experience includes:

  • Giant illuminated tree in the Queen Elizabeth II Sunken Gardens
  • Thousands of lights and a host of iconic holiday characters throughout the park
  • WE Made It: Holiday Market sponsored by Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island in partnership with the Urban Art Market, Rose City Etsy Team and Windsor Eats, food vendors and festive performances on special programming dates.

What’s New for 2019:

  • Newly renovated washroom building will now offer heated and accessible facilities throughout the festival.
  • New illuminated signage will help guide you to the show from our main parking area, which can be found in our south side parking lot, accessible from either Dougall or McDougall. We’ll once again offer parking as well at Kennedy Collegiate and our Parks Field House and Main Office on McDougall.
  • The WE Made It: Holiday Market, which is sponsored by Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island in partnership with the Urban Art Market, Rose City Etsy Team and WindsorEats will have more booths and more hours of operation: the market will now be fully open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and we’ll offer a partial market for food and beverages during the week now as well.
  • New this year, we’ll offer sensory friendly “Silent Nights” on Monday evenings from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in partnership with Autism Windsor Essex. The lights will be on, but sound will be muted, strobe elements paused and light dulling glasses available, so the display can be enjoyed in a peaceful environment that is accommodating to sensory sensitivities.
  • We’ll also be opening the park to walkers and joggers on Sunday mornings from 6am to 8am. This will be a great opportunity for fans of daytime visits to enjoy the popular park simply as a park (with a little enhanced scenery, of course).
  • Sparking Windsor’s well known charitable spirit will be a priority again this year, and we’ll be hosting a number local charities, including Operation Keep Windsor Warm, Autism Ontario Windsor Essex, Windsor Essex Care for Kids Foundation (W.E. Care for Kids), Unemployed Help Centre, Canadian Mental Health Association and the Salvation Army.
