“Merry and Bright”

Uxbridge Holiday Trail


People are eager to get outside and start exploring all the great things to do in YDH. But don't forget....it's still important to stay safe while you are having fun supporting our local businesses and communities.

If you are lucky enough to live in YDH (we are biased) or you want to come for a visit, we've got some great ideas for you to get active outside, explore your inner artist, learn something new and celebrate this awesome season...virtually or in-person. Please note that many conservation parks and trails are over capacity, so ensure you pre-book your visit or even better...step off the beaten path and find discover a new terrain to enjoy.

Remember safety is a choice you make and we look forward to seeing all visitors again soon.

Please check with all businesses for updated hours of operation, programming, COVID-19 policies, and restrictions.

The locals know that something magical happens when you bring silver bells and stars of wonder into the woods!  Yes, acres of Elgin Park is transformed to the Uxbridge Fantasy of Lights  a trail of bright and brilliant holiday displays winding through the trail.  The park is open every night from 6-9:30pm from December 4th-January 2nd, just as dusk falls.

The ‘merry’ happens downtown with ‘busy sidewalks dressed in holiday style!’ when boutique shops and makers open for evening hours and bring you their festive best!  Warm up with something to sip from the   The Bridge Social . Carefully curated authors are celebrated at Blue Heron Books.
