Winter at Ontario Place

A winter festival is taking over Ontario Place this season. This free admission event will feature various winter-themed activities, including the Winter Light Exhibition.

Open to the public seven days a week, visitors will get a chance to skate on a synthetic rink and take in film screenings at the newly re-opened Cinesphere.

Highlights include:

  • Winter Light Exhibition: Experience the creativity and innovation of the 12 illuminated exhibits by local artists that will project, shape, transmit, reflect or contain light. The Winter Light theme mimics Ontario’s winter landscape. Visitors to Winter Light Exhibition will experience exhibits ranging from illuminated water forms, digital winter themed imagery, structures emanating light from within, a 12-foot-tall freestanding icicle silo and many more unique exhibits
  • Skating: A synthetic skating rink will be open to the public from December 8, 2017, to March 18, 2018. On-site services include skate rentals, skate sharpening, snacks and beverages, and music piped throughout the site
