Get Your Glow On.
December 1 has arrived, and We OPEN Tonight!
We are delighted to welcome you to our 27th GLOWing Season...but it is a chilly one out there, with temperatures forecast for this evening to be -25 to -28, feeling like -30 to -34. BRRRRRRR!
In past years, when temperatures were this cold, we usually only left the lights on for anyone who still wanted to walk through or drive by.
This year, for the first time, on cold days like today, we will have a "Limited Opening," which means we will have the lights on, fire pits stoked, and the concession and store will be open too!
So if you want to bundle up and head out this evening, with 13 major light displays throughout the park and more than 500,000 bulbs illuminating your walk through the pathways, we are sure you will be IGNITED!
Throughout the month, we have a lineup of special events, activities for the family, skating, fire pits, visits with Santa, and so much more.
The residents in Airdrie have been hard at work getting their GLOW on! Here is a map outlining all the homes that have registered their light displays.
It's time to showcase Airdrie's holiday spirit by getting those lights up and ready to GLOW! We want show everyone just how we can connect our community, literally one bulb at a time!

Situated in the heart of Nose Creek Park in Airdrie, AB, we are Western Canada’s largest, free, outdoor walk-through Christmas Light Display.
In 1996, the Airdrie Festival of Lights began with a group of local residents committed to putting Airdrie on the map. That group grew over the years to become the Airdrie Festival of Lights Society (AFOLS), which has continued to operate the Festival.
It takes all twelve months to plan and organize this annual tradition, meaning we have volunteer opportunities all year long, with specific projects in the warmer months, including maintenance of our displays.
The Airdrie Festival of Lights Society depends on the cash donations of visitors like you to keep the lights on. Funds are welcomed all year round.
