CHRISTMAS SPLENDOR at GOVERNMENT HOUSE
4607 Dewdney Ave
Regina, SK

November 16, 2019 - January 5, 2020

Christmas is a magical time at Government House, with windows and doorways swagged in lush garlands, festooned with holly berries and twinkling lights. The splendour of the season can be seen and felt, at every turn and the atmosphere alone makes for a wonderfully festive visit.

If stopping by, don't be surprised to be greeted by a Visitor Experience Host dressed in period outfit from the early 1900s. Ask for a tour and they will guide you through Government House, revealing Victorian Christmas traditions and Government House stories along the way

We are offering scheduled First-person Guide Tours on Saturdays; 1:00 and 3:00 pm the tour is in English and at 2:00 pm the tour is in French. If you can't make those times, no worries, just ask if a tour is available when you do come to visit.

If you're having guests or family visit over the holiday, bring them to see Christmas at Government House. View Government House transformed with glittering Christmas trees, twinkling lights and a dining table laid for a royal feast to celebrate the festive season.

See us in all our Christmas splendour before Santa's elves tuck all the decorations away! Don't miss the DICKENS YULETIDE SINGERS event on December 14th and 15th, 2019.

CP is also encouraging fans of the train to donate heart-healthy food, as everyone should have access to healthy, nutritious food, regardless of circumstances. This supports the mission of CP Has Heart, a program dedicated to improving the heart health of men, women and children in North America. To date, this program has raised over C$19 million for cardiac care and research. Visit www.cpr.ca/holiday-train/healthy-donations
