MORRISBURG – One of the largest holiday events in the region opens November 26 for the 2021 season. Alight at Night, Upper Canada Village’s annual festival of over 100,000 lights opens for its 21st season.

Like the 2020 season, the event will have online-only ticketing and staggered entry for the season.

The village’s Victorian Saint Nick will greet visitors in his winter workshop in a physically distanced and safe manner.

Many of the activities at UCV that were put on hold in 2020 have returned for this season including rides on the Miniature Toy Train at the village gates. Train rides are included with event admission.

Also returning this year is the popular light and sound show at Crysler Hall and for an extra fee, private carriage rides through the village. Carriage rides need to be booked in advance.

Accessibility nights are scheduled for December 1 and 8 and must be booked through the St. Lawrence Parks Commission booking website at

On site dining options are available as well. Wearing a face mask for indoor areas is required.

Alight at Night will run from November 26 to January 1, 2022. Between November 26 and December 16, the event runs Thursdays to Sundays between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. Starting December 16 through to January 1, 2022, Alight at Night will be open seven-days-a-week, except for December 24 and 25.
