Billed as the city’s biggest walkthrough holiday market, the Polar Winter Festival will take over Bandshell Park at Exhibition Place from November 25 until December 26.

Guests will be swept into an enchanting winter wonderland featuring massive holiday décor, festive rides, local vendors, and breathtaking photo ops.
