Get ready to get festive in Sun Peaks this winter. From our popular Holiday Kick-Off Weekend to New Year’s Eve celebrations, here are five events that will get you in the holiday spirit.
Holiday Artisan Market, Dec 7 – 8 & Dec 14 – 15
This year, our Holiday Artisan Market has been expanded to two weekends, so you’ll have plenty of time to complete your holiday shopping. The Sun Peaks Grand Hotel and Conference Centre lobby will be filled with artisans offering fine and functional work including textiles, wood, ceramics, photography, paintings, sculptures, jewelry, and more! It’s the perfect chance to stock up on local goods for that hard-to-buy-for person on your list.
Holiday Kick-Off Weekend, Dec 14 – 15
Our annual Holiday Kick-Off Weekend is a favourite for a reason and, once again, we have partnered with the Sun Peaks Grand Hotel & Conference Centre for two days of free holiday fun. The village comes alive with colourfully lit trees, photos with Santa, ornament making, festive performances and more. You’re going to want to wrangle up the whole family for this one!
Activities with Santa, Dec 22 - 24
Santa’s schedule is completely loaded at this time of year, so we are stoked that he is making the time to swing by Sun Peaks. Get your wish lists ready, because the big guy will be hanging around all weekend and partaking in all of his favourite winter activities with you. From sledding, to skiing and even reading a Christmas book, Santa is ready to make the most of his time here!
Caroling in the Village with Nancy Greene, Dec 23 – 24
Get ready to spread the Christmas cheer with Olympic gold medalist Nancy Greene at our annual village caroling. No experience is necessary to take part in this Christmas tradition. We even provide the sheet music for you. Meet at the Village Day Lodge at 6:30pm on either night to join in on the fun.
New Year’s Eve Celebrations, Dec 31
Celebrate the beginning of 2020 with the biggest night of the year in Sun Peaks. Festivities include the First Flight Big Air Invitational, Kids Glow Stick Parade, Torchlight Parade and an amazing fireworks display. After the fireworks, wander through the village and check out one of several New Year’s Eve parties to ring in the New Year.
