The holiday season is a time of joy when we connect with one another and look forward to a new year. However, when life in community is impacted by a crisis, like the recent wildfires, our experience of the holidays can be profoundly altered. For some, getting through the holidays can be stressful, especially as schools and community programs shut down for the season. For this reason, we created The Gift of Play, a multi-day family festival that enlivens the holiday season and strengthens the social fabric of our communities.
The holiday festival will run from from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on December 28, 29, 30 and January 2, 3, 4.

110 Eymundson Rd
Fort McMurray, AB
Registration for the festival is free.
With over 11,000 school-aged children in Fort McMurray and Wood Buffalo, we make it a fun-filled experience for those who spend the Christmas holidays at home with family.
As local schools and community programs shut down for the holiday season, we step up to brighten the holidays and help usher a new year of new hope and possibilities.
We create a safe and inclusive space that embraces all sections of our diverse, multi-cultural communities.
By creating an exciting destination for community members to celebrate together, we strengthen the spirit of our communities and the ties that bind us together.
