Christmas Weekend Festivities

Drysdales DeersThe holiday season turns to winter magic beginning the third weekend of November and every weekend till Christmas as the Drysdale's village comes to life. Be our guest and enjoy all the festivities the season brings at Drysdales, the holiday tradition since 1945.

Activities include our Santa and Mrs. Claus, our magician, train rides, face painters, horse-drawn wagon rides – we have a variety of food and warm drinks available, as well as a bonfire, and of course our Evergreen store featuring all sorts of Christmas decor and gifts. There is no admission fee for these events or parking. Drysdale’s is a pet-friendly farm.

Drysdale's Tree PlantationChoose and cut your perfect spruce or fir tree from our fabulous 400 acre plantation. Pick up your saw and you are ready to mount tractor drawn wagons to transport you to and from our plantation. Upon your return your tree will be baled for easy transport, and drilled for our unique one step tree stand. Fresh cut trees are also available for your convenience in our arbour daily along with beautiful handmade fraser fir, white pine and cedar wreaths and garland. We also offer decorated wreaths with a variety of colors and accents.

Take a leisurely horse drawn wagon ride with one of our six teams through the countryside, while sounds of sleigh bells and horses hooves on snow fill the air.

Children of all ages are requested at the red roofed home of Mr. and Mrs. Claus for their yearly review to renew acquaintances and update their wish lists. Spread a little holiday magic by adding to your smile; visit our face painters for seasonal sparkle and shine.

Santa's HouseThe first snow fall, clear crisp starry nights, Christmas trees set alight through frost covered windows and a fire in the hearth, all the warmth and wonder of holidays past and yet to come alive within the walls of the Evergreen Store. Holiday and home accents, décor and gifts to inspire and treasure throughout the season.

Bring your appetite and enjoy our hearty country fare while you sit back and enjoy sounds of the season with live entertainment on the palladium. Drysdale's … A Destination for the Seasons.
