Upper Canada Village, is a beloved local attraction that transports you back to 1860! Trained actors take on the roles of villager portraying what it was like to be a blacksmith, a baker, and even a cheesemaker in the 19th Century!
There’s no time more magical to visit Upper Canada Village than during December. That’s because the entire village transforms into a festive winter wonderland brilliantly illuminated with nearly one million Christmas lights. Be sure to wait until the sun sets and then bundle up for a picture-perfect tour through a slice of history.
It’s possible to lose yourself in the lights, but there’s still plenty to do! Visiting with the family? Hop on board a horse-drawn wagon to relive “Jingle Bells”! Are you with someone special? Book a romantic carriage ride for two. Get into the holiday spirit by singing along with other carollers at the Upper Canada Village Church! And best of all, on select nights you can visit Saint Nick himself at his Victorian-style mansion – enjoy his gorgeously decorated home with a comfy, cozy feel, and take a photo with the jolly fellow.
Don’t forget about the rides! Hop onto a life-sized toy train, and ride a vintage merry-go-round. And, when it’s all over, you can enjoy festive dining at three licensed restaurants on site. When it’s cold out, nothing beats fresh-baked bread and cinnamon buns from the Village Bakery with a steaming cup of hot cocoa or cider!
Alight at Night is a one-way ticket to holiday cheer and we look forward to it every Christmas season. Stop by Cornwall for a visit and you’ll see why!
