This Christmas, give yourself a gift – the gift of a calmer, happier, more peaceful holiday shopping experience. Skip the parking pandemonium of the power centres and giant malls, and enjoy an Edmonton classic – Christmas at Bonnie Doon Centre! #ItsAllRightHere with a wide selection of retail shops, dining, entertainment, and, of course, Santa!

Celebrate Santa’s Arrival at Bonnie Doon Centre!

Saturday, November 26 | 11:00 am

What would Christmas be without Santa? Bonnie Doon Centre is excited to welcome back the Man in Red on Saturday, November 26, 2022. Be at the mall’s Promo Court at 11:00 am to join in the fanfare alongside the caroling Sugarplum Trio, the Ice Queen, and the Holiday Grouch! The celebration will include free crafts and face painting, plus the first 200 children to visit Santa will receive a gift bag from MaKami College.

Santa will be available for visits and photos starting at noon!
