Interesting events happening in Banff over the holiday season

Christmas at the Castle kicks off on November 27 

Fairmont Banff Springs unveiled a slew of new and returning seasonal programming this week to celebrate the upcoming holiday season and the return of Christmas at the Castle on November 27. 

New for 2021 and exclusive to Fairmont Banff Springs guests is the Christmas Concert Series. Taking place on select dates throughout the holidays, hotel guests will be treated to a selection of complimentary Christmas-themed concerts performed by some of the country’s top music acts, including Nice Horse, Dan Davidson, and Jess Moskaluke. VIP tickets for each performance will also be available for $100 and come complete with a table for four guests and a bottle of wine or a bucket of beer.  

An assortment of Fairmont venues and affiliates will also be partaking in this year’s festivities, from abundant buffets in The Vermillion Room and festive afternoon tea in Rundle Bar to a transformation taking place at Ramsay Bar from December 17 to January 2 featuring extravagant holiday décor and festive fare.

Other Fairmont favourites returning for 2021 include the holiday-themed 360° Dome outdoor private dining experience featuring a new gourmet festive menu from December 17 to 31, the private family-style five-course Santa’s Dining Room from December 14 to 31, and the hotel’s four Santa Suites guest rooms equipped with custom Christmas decorations.
