It Started With An Idea

Who doesn't like ideas...

The Spirit of Sylvan Yuletide Festival Committee had its first meeting November 19, 2011, knowing full well it would be a lot of work, but FUN work. Who can’t enjoy Christmas! Who can’t enjoy a Party! Who can’t enjoy a Christmas Party!

A Special Thanks

We couldn't do it without you!

Thank you to our many sponsors and donators who contribute so much financially or with gifts. Thank you to all the people, families and children who inspire the Festival to move forward. Because of you, we continue to proudly support and contribute proceeds to the Sylvan Lake and Area Urgent Care Centre. We cringe at the thought of a door fee, and thanks to each and every one of you, the Festival remains a Free event.

Thank you to our many organizers and volunteers and their passion for the Festival and our community.

The Dream Turned Into Reality Proudly celebrating community, family and friends.

Since the first Festival in 2012, it has grown considerably, has established important roots, and is now a signature event in our community and in Central Alberta.

The Spirit of Sylvan Yuletide Festival is a Christmas celebration of traditions, all at one unique festival. It fosters and promotes opportunities for artisans and vendors, choirs, school choirs, musicians, entertainers and of course, we cannot forget about Mr. and Mrs. Claus checking off children’s lists at the Kidz Zone. Beautiful Christmas trees and festive decorations are interspersed among the Silent Auction and Raffle items. Excited children surround Mascots as they dance in the aisle ways. Perhaps having barrels of laughs on stage for the Ugly Sweater Contest or decorating Gingerbread Houses, gets you in the Christmas Spirit, the Festival is indeed a sight to behold!

The Spirit of Sylvan Yuletide Festival is proud to celebrate community, family and friends through a wide-range of experiences and activities. We are proud to share with you the wonderful Spirit of Christmas. Believe in the magic, we do!
