More than just gifts, twinkling lights and carollers, Christmas is a feeling! Share in those feelings and create new moments with friends and family this holiday season. Read on for ideas to help you get started on All the Christmas Feels!

ALL THE CHRISTMAS FEELS DOWNTOWN
Now through December 23, 2017

Cozy in front of a fire with a cup a ho-cho and your favourite human. Gaze on twinkling lights strewn across streets and door frames. Watch A Christmas Carol for the bazillionth time. Hear the scraping of ice beneath your feet as you glide on the ice. These are just SOME of the Christmas Feels you can find downtown this holiday season!

Santa sightings – Skating, selfies and photo ops, there is plenty of opportunity to see Santa and his elves this holiday season! 

Christmas carols and concerts – Whether you have the voice of an angel or are better off doing private concerts to yourself in your car, Christmas music is a wonderful way to get into the holiday spirit!

Screen and stage – For some, the spirit of Christmas starts with a good story! Catch an ol’ traditional tale or start that season with a new narrative.

Holiday Shopping – You’ve made your list and you’ve checked it twice! Now it’s time to get gifts for those that have been a little naughty and extra nice!

Something a little different – If you are looking to start a new tradition or check out something new this holiday season, this blog is for you!

November 27, 2017

HAPPENINGS 10 at Arts Commons is an experimental art party filled with new exhibitions, installations, live performances, and musical projects in celebration of our current visual art exhibitors.

This Happenings, we are bringing the event back to its roots! We will be transforming the Engineered Air Theatre and other secret spaces of Arts Commons for some unexpected collisions of artistic expression and creative projects. Get ready, for Arts Commons will be filled to the brim with art!
