Celebration at The Leaf
November 25, 2023 – January 7, 2024
Celebrate the holiday season with a festive new display in the Babs Asper Display House at The Leaf! Celebration is a vibrant showcase of our diversity. This display celebrates the rich tapestry of traditions, customs, and festivities from around the world, emphasizing the importance of unity and togetherness during this joyous time of year.
Start your visit by wandering through a pristine winter forest display, enjoying the fresh scents of poplars, dogwoods, lush ferns, and fresh cut black hills spruce trees adorned with iridescent shimmering ornaments.
Next, the Holidays at the Park zone pays a heartfelt tribute to Winnipeg's rich multicultural heritage, shining a spotlight on a myriad of festivities. Here, holiday themed trees take center stage, each adorned with horticultural ornaments that celebrate nature’s beauty. They pay homage to a range of holidays, including Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year's, Kwanzaa, and the Winter Solstice. Then, encounter the Whimsical Woods display, where you’ll be enchanted by celestial-themed topiaries and a miniature village.
In the Hartley and Heather Richardson Tropical Biome, bromeliads and ferns are arranged to form a spectacular holiday tree, and in the Mediterranean Biome, a unique holiday tree made entirely of succulents is on display.
The Celebration display in the Babs Asper Display House is included with regular admission to The Leaf.
