Holiday Festivities in Medicine Hat


A full list during Medicine Hat's most festive months.

Christmas Lights:

Twinkle Tours

Medicine Hat residents bring their best when it comes to decorating their homes during the Holiday season. Prairie Sprinter offers tours on the north and south sides of the city, as well as private bookings. Stay on the lookout for curated twinkle tour itineraries, as many local community members will piece together a list.

Park Meadows

Festive lights will again bring colour to Park Meadows in December. The community is welcome to visit and explore with hopes they’ll make a donation that will go towards both the Root Cellar Food and Wellness Hub and the upgrades and upkeep of the annual light display. Lights are turned on from 5-10p.m. each evening. 

Towne Square

Take a stroll underneath the canopy at Towne Square, located at 603 1 St. SE, and experience almost all the colours of the rainbow. This tunnel of vibrancy is the perfect spot to soak in the Holiday spirit.

Medicine Hat’s Historic Downtown

Festive-shaped lights, like trees and stars, are installed around downtown Medicine Hat, and they light up as the sun sets. There is a large Pine Tree in BATUS Park that shines blue in the evening as well, with a bright, silver star on the top.


CP Holiday Train

December 19, 2023

Everyone is welcome at this free, family-friendly event. Dallas Smith and MacKenzie Porter are performing at this annual Holiday event.

Plan Your Holiday Evening:

Book a Workshop at Botanicals

Botanicals is a plant boutique that goes the extra mile to make sure plants find the perfect home. This Holiday season, you can book a private event of up to 14 people (minimum six) to decorate a Grinch Tree. If you’d like to host the workshop in your home, the team at Botanicals can come to you. Visit their website for pricing and options.

Book a Twinkle Tour with Prairie Sprinter

Tour the festive lights throughout Medicine Hat on a private tour with Prairie Sprinter. Yourself and up to 23 guests will drive around the city for 90 minutes, sight seeing all the best decorated houses. Book here to hold your spot.

Book a Class at Baking with Candice

To save time and stress cleaning up a mess in your own home, booking a class is always a nice choice. On the website, you can find pre-planned classes to join in on, or you can book a private class for all ages. 

Cut Down a Christmas Tree

Still haven’t found that perfect tree or want to find a friend for your current one? Country Mouse Farm and Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park have pine trees available to cut down. Bundle up and have a smooth Griswald Christmas this year. Find more information about both with our Holiday Festivities in Medicine Hat article. 

Creative Freedom Art Hub

A pick and paint art studio, with many different shapes of ceramics and pottery to choose from. Book a class on their website, or freely create in their paint studio.

At Home Holiday Food and Beverage Celebrations

Have a night in with The Copper Leaf Cafe’s charcuterie board and Grit City Distillery’s spiced eggnog rum, with classic Holiday movies, games, or music.
