Magical lights, delicious treats, and family fun? Sounds like a perfect evening for this holiday season!

Last year, TELUS Spark Science Centre introduced Sparkle Sparkle, an exciting new holiday destination. We all know how 2020 turned out, but Sparkle Sparkle is BACK to light things up, brighten your nights, and bring you some sparkle! The darkest winter nights are nearly here, but starting on November 25, 2021, until January 2, 2022, you can come inside to warm your hearts with Sparkle Sparkle.

When the clock strikes 5:30 pm, the first floor of the science centre will be transformed into a magical celebration of lights, triggering the feel-good chemicals that we all need right now. Grab the kids, meet your friends, and enjoy a boost of happiness this Christmas season as TELUS Spark Science Centre lights up our long nights.

You’ll want to get your cameras ready, as this amazing photo op and learning opportunity will transform the science centre into a place filled with light, wonder, and holiday magic. A path will lead you through a massive, shimmering palace. The winter palace, with LED walls, huge geometric structures, and strands of bejewelled light hanging in and around you, will amaze the whole family. Don’t forget a sparkling family selfie!

Explore the warmest snowfall as the digital immersion gallery turns into a festive, interactive, and digital snowstorm experience. Be sure to plan a visit to the Robot Workshop for a self-served photo opportunity with Santa and Flint, the friendliest, bright-nose reindeer/robot dog that ever was.

TELUS Spark Sparkle (Family Fun Calgary)

Don’t worry about the snowsuit or frozen fingers, because it’s all indoors! Tickets are $19 for adults and $13 for kids ages 3 – 17 and Spark members get 50% off ticket prices. Be sure to purchase your timed tickets early. Please note that the science centre galleries are not open during this experience. Sparkle Sparkle was designed with the health and safety of all guests and employees in mind and follows AHS COVID-19 guidelines to ensure the experience is safe for everyone.

Explore a winding path through the Christmas trees and discover holiday treats at the Sugar Shack. (Hidden in the trees are little alcoves with tables and chairs, perfect for your family to sit and take a break.) Sip on specialty winter cocktails and savour holiday treats. Don’t forget to stop by the Spark Store for the perfect science-inspired gift. It all adds up to a holiday evening the whole family will enjoy.

Happy (brighter) holidays, Calgary; it’s time to sparkle!
