Holidays in Historic Downtown AbbotsfordThanks to COVID Christmas celebrations in Downtown Abbotsford are going to look a little different in 2020.

Win a Downtown Christmas:

Light Up Downtown:

While Santa won’t be lighting the Christmas tree in 2020, you can! Sing, clap, play an instrument to activate the sound-triggered lights at Essendene and West Railway.

Elf in a Store Window:

Every week 5 elves will be hidden in different store windows throughout Downtown Abbotsford. Snap a picture, post to social media or email in your photos. Once you have found all 5 elves you will receive $10 of Downtown Dollars to spend at participating businesses.
