Want a fun way to celebrate the winter season in Toronto this year? Then enjoy a winter-themed family-friendly outdoor festival, Winter Glow!
Winter Glow is a light, snow, and ice show. It is both a drive-through and a walk-through experience on a 1.8-kilometer forested trail. Walk-through is a great way to stop and get some wonderful photo opportunities. But driving through is a good option if you want to stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. It will also be warmer in your car.
However, if you do walk, you will be happy to know that is a limited and socially distanced event. And masks are required for guests who can’t maintain a 2-metre distance between other guests (otherwise, they are not required).
So what do you get to enjoy during the Winter Glow Trail? Well, you get to see:
- Ice Sculptures
- Snow Carvings
- Illuminated Structures
- Life-size Snow Globes
- 45 minutes of light show programming
This is a great family-friendly event, so kids and adults can enjoy this wonderful winter experience.
Winter Glow takes place at the Black Creek Pioneer Village on 1000 Murray Ross Parkway near Steeles Avenue and Jane Street in Toronto, Ontario. It takes place from February 4, 2022, through February 27, 2022. Winter Glow runs from Thursday through Sunday from 5:30 PM to 1:00 PM. It also takes place on two additional days. It takes place on Monday, February 14, 2022 (which is Valentine’s Day), and on Monday, February 21, 2022 (which is a Family Day).

The walking route is wheelchair and stroller accessible, which is great. However, the route is a gravel trail and is not completely flat as it has small hills, so that is something to keep in mind.
Another thing to keep in mind is that even though the route itself is wheelchair friendly, the free shuttle bus service that takes you from the exit back to the entrance to retrieve your parked vehicle is not.
Also, this experience features flashing lights, so it is not advised for anyone with photosensitivity.
Dogs are also allowed on this experience, either in your car or on a leash.
