November 24 – December 17

The Festival of Lights and Trees illuminates the holiday spirit.

Welcome to the Festival of Lights and Trees: an immersive fundraising experience that has been a community favourite since 1997, creating memories and becoming a holiday tradition for guests of all ages. Growing from a small event, with some of our amazing volunteers raffling off a few trees from the mainstage, the Festival of Lights and Trees now encompasses the entire building with tree decorations and wreaths being raffled off in support of the Capitol Theatre (thanks to our incredible team of volunteers and our generous sponsors!)

Back by Popular Demand for 2023!

But that’s not all! Capitol Cafe will have items for purchase for our Panto audiences at the concession stand.
