The Winter Lights Festival
is back to bring light and joy to Southern Alberta through the darkest months!
Join us for opening night and experience the illumination of over 100,000+
lights decorating the beautiful Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden. Last year the
festival became Lethbridge's newest winter tradition and Nikka Yuko is thrilled
to be hosting this festival again from December 1st until February 3rd. Stay warm in 4 Seasons Home Comfort heating lounge.
Shop for unique gift items at the Visitor’s Centre Gift Shop. Enjoy a seasonal
treat at the Sugar Shack Concession including the Garden's signature blend of
coffees and teas from Cupper's Coffee & Tea. All this and much more at this year's
Winter Lights Festival.
At 6:30pm a special presentation will be conducted to open up our 2nd Annual Winter Light Festival. Special annoucements by some of our local, provincial and Society representatives will start our evening.
Nikkei Cultural Society will be serving tea and sweet mochi cake samples.
If the temperature is below -25 degrees Celsius the
festival will be cancelled on that day. You can stay up to date with the Garden
by following https://www.facebook.com/nikkayuko/ or https://twitter.com/NikkaYuko
or contact the Garden
directly at 403 328-3511 with any questions or concerns. The Garden is particularly fragile during the winter
months because branches can break easily in the cold temperature. The Garden's
maintenance staff works incredibly hard on these living pieces of art. We ask
that all guests stay to paths and designated areas, and to not touch or pull on
The Garden allows guests to bring hot beverages and
concession treats into the Garden during the festival. However, we sincerely
ask that guests do not bring beverages or snacks onto the Pavilion deck because
the wood is susceptible to stains from even small spills.
Please be courteous so that all guests may enjoy the
Garden and the lights. Please no running on paths and be mindful of blocking
paths and areas.
Have a happy and joyful season. Arigato gozaimasu for
supporting Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden & The Winter Lights Festival.
