Community Events

It’s back! Christmas in the Park returns Saturday, Nov. 25, 2017 from 4-8 p.m. for another magical year of family Christmas tradition and everyone is invited!

Christmas in the Park features a number of fun family-friendly activities including:

  • Visiting with Santa
  • Walking through the candle luminary maze and discover its unique design
  • Dashing through the snow on a horse drawn hay ride
  • Savoring the deliciously sweet maple syrup taffy
  • Challenging your family to an old fashioned tea boiling contest
  • Great Christmas crafts
  • Enjoying a warm bowl of chili and a hot dog while drinking a cup of hot cocoa or apple cider
  • Donations to the Food Bank and Christmas Elves will be accepted at the event

Tickets to the event are $15 for 4 or $5 per person and children under 3 are free. Tickets are available at The Town of Devon Office, Devon IGA, Servus Credit Union, Devon Central Pharmacy or on the day of the event at the Park N’ Ride or Lions Campground.

As there is no parking down at the Lions Campground for Christmas in the Park, there will be a Park n’ Ride set up to get event goers to and from the event safely. The Park n’ Ride will pick up and drop off at 17 Athabasca Ave. in the parking lot by the Devon Public Library and the first shuttle will leave just before 4 p.m. the day of the event.

In an effort to keep Christmas in the Park accessible to all, Devon’s Community Bus will be available to shuttle those with wheelchairs or walkers down to the event. Parking passes will also be provided upon request to advance ticket holders that have a current placard for people with disabilities by contacting Jordan or Kristin at JHiggs@devon.ca or KWalsh@devon.ca.

“We are always looking for volunteers to help out with this monumental event each year,” said Kristin Walsh, Manager of Parks, Recreation & Culture for the Town of Devon. “I’d like to give a huge thank you to our Christmas in the Park Committee for all their work this past year organizing this amazing event.”

Those interested in helping out with Christmas in the Park can sign up for a number of different volunteer activities at www.volunteersignup.org/DX83B. Our volunteers will receive free admission to the event for themselves and their immediate family.
