Christmas in Ottawa

Welcome to Christmas in Ottawa! We love Ottawa at Christmastime. It is such a magical time of year! The Christmas trees are all lit with beautiful, twinkling lights, there are decorations on houses and street corners and there are entire families outside playing in the snow.

There isn't anywhere else we would rather be for Christmas.

If you are spending Christmas in Ottawa then we are pleased to tell you that there is so much for you to do. There are Christmas activities festivities for all age groups. Once Christmas is all over, don't forget that there are still Ottawa New Year's Eve celebrations to partake in!!

We know that Christmas is a busy time of year and your time is precious so we want to make sure that you make the most of it.

Our Ottawa Christmas section is here to provide you with information on:
