Lansdowne Holiday Magic!

Ottawa Christmas Market 2018

Bring your Winter Wonderland dreams to life at Lansdowne this year! To kick this season off, we’re inviting you, your friends and family to join us for our annual tree lighting ceremony on November 30 at 6 PM. You can’t miss it – our great tree proudly stands right in front of the Aberdeen Pavilion!

Our park will be filled with holiday cheer, just walk through and explore! Ottawa’s Christmas Market will officially launch in 2019 with countless booths and activities, but lucky for you, we have the ultimate sneak peek this season. Check out Aberdeen Square’s Christmas market inside and out – don’t forget to look up, the square will be lined with magical twinkly lights! Enjoy free hot chocolate and cider to keep you warm while you listen to our carolers and say hi to Santa! Rumor has it, our incredible athletes might even be there to wish you a Merry Christmas!
