4 fun-filled and festive holiday activities taking place in Langford (CONTEST)


‘Tis the season to be jolly, and with a whole lineup of festive, family-friendly activities, Langford is the place to be!

City of Langford’s annual winter celebration is back once more, and from enjoying the sparkle of holiday lights throughout the city to spending time partaking in holiday activities with friends, there’s a little bit of something for everyone this season.

You can check out the full list of Langford’s fun-filled activities here, but for now, here are 4 of our favourite festive and family-friendly holiday activities you can’t miss this season:

Langford Station drop-in Crafternoons

Drop by Langford’s Creation Station and join The Good Party for a holiday craft project or two! Pop by and enjoy a little festive crafting without all the fuss of having to go out and source the supplies and tools yourself.

The Good Party has pulled together a few of their favourite holiday crafts for makers of all levels to choose from, including some fun trending TikTok options! There will be a variety of craft projects available, including mini yarn tree garlands, sugar cookie decorating, holiday garlands, pom pom ornaments, door hangings, and more! Project length varies by weekend and takes between 20-60 minutes to complete. While you’re there, browse the shops and artist studios, grab a bite to eat from a food truck, and enjoy the live music!

Crafternoons projects are suitable for 12yr+. Step-by-step instruction is provided, as needed.  Project kits range from $15-30. Payment accepted via Debit and Credit Card. Take-home Crafternoon kits are also available for purchase.

  • When: Saturday and Sundays from December 3rd to 18th, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Where: The Langford Station Creation Station, 720 Station Avenue

Pom Pom Garland and Wreath-making Workshops

City of Langford is back at Veterans Memorial Park with the Good Party for another year of crafting fun!

For wreath-making, each participant will create a 12 inch evergreen wreath complete with a bow! Workshops include step-by-step beginner-paced instruction and all supplies.

You can also get your pom-pom on! Garlands, that is. During these festive outdoor workshops, you will create a pom pom garland featuring 8 – 12 pom poms in a holiday colour palette. These garlands will look great on your mantle, tree, or wrapped around a gift. 

All sessions take place outdoors, rain or shine, at community tables under the tent at Veterans Memorial Park.
