Experience the magic of Christmas past this December! Once Upon a Christmas returns to Heritage Park for nine days of old-fashioned holiday fun.
Please take note of the changes below before purchasing your timed-entry tickets. Thank you.
New this year: Activity reservations required
In order to facilitate physical distancing, guests must reserve a time slot for select capacity-limited activities this year. These activities remain free with your Once Upon a Christmas admission or valid annual pass, but a reservation will be required.
Activities requiring a reservation include:
- Horse-drawn wagon rides
- Santa visits
Reservations for these activities will be available online beginning November 2. Please choose a reservation time that allows you to make your way to the event location from the front gate before your activity begins.
Wainwright Hotel Breakfast
Instead of the pre-ticketed breakfast buffet offered in previous years, we are offering an a la carte breakfast menu available each day of the event, from 10am-2pm. Reservations are strongly recommended. Please call 403-268-8645 to reserve your table.
Once Upon a Christmas admission is required to attend the breakfast during this time.

Santa Visits and Optional Photos
Santa visits are complimentary, and must be booked online at the time of ticket purchase. Optional professional photos are available for purchase. Visits and photos will be outdoors, weather permitting. In inclement weather they will be inside, and masks must be worn.
Horse-Drawn Wagon Rides
Tour the Park, decorated for the season, behind a friendly pair of Heritage Park horses. Wagon rides are complimentary, and must be booked online at the time of ticket purchase. There is a maximum of one cohort, up to eight riders per wagon. Masks must be worn while on the wagon. Rides are weather-dependent.
Get your Christmas tree at the Park
Round out your visit by picking up your Christmas tree at the on-site tree lot! A portion of the revenue supports Heritage Park, a registered charity.
And so much more
In addition to the above, enjoy a gourmet hot chocolate as you wander the decorated streets of the Historical Village, discover holiday traditions in some of the historical homes and exhibits throughout the Park, take home a Christmas craft, visit the Kids’ Only Store, and pick up the perfect gift in Heritage Park’s quaint Christmas shops.
Don’t forget to bring a donation or an unwrapped toy for the Salvation Army’s Christmas campaign, and help bring the magic of Christmas to life for those in need.
