Experience the 21st Capitol Christmas Festival Tradition 

What once began as a small-town Port Hope Christmas Tradition in 1997 has now grown from a few trees raffled on our main stage – to the extravaganza it has become today. More than 60 decorated trees and wreaths amid thousands of lights lining our entrance and lobby during the 2017 Capitol Christmas Festival of Lights and Trees. As 2018 is our 21st year, we aim to deliver a truly spectacular Festival of Lights and Trees this year that you will not want to miss. Capitol Christmas is the perfect family-friendly event, we will be open during the Candle Light Walk and prior to the Port Hope Santa Claus Parade.

KING ARTHUR THE PANTO audiences will have exclusive access to the trees during intermission and prior to the show so be sure to arrive early to have enough time to see everything the Festival has to offer.

We invite you to join us as we celebrate 21 years of the joy of the holidays and enjoy a complimentary cup of hot chocolate and cookies while you browse and select your favourite trees. Raffle tickets and commemorative holiday decorations will be for sale during this event, must be over age 18 to play.

The Capitol Christmas Festival of Lights and Trees Raffle will be held at 2:00pm on Monday December 17th.
