We have partnered with the District of Tofino and the Tofino Chamber of Commerce to bring you Tofino Winter Nights – a month-long calendar of festive events in December.

What is Tofino Winter Nights?

This new event is a tribute to Tofino Winter Lights at the former Tofino Botanical Gardens (now Naa’Waya’Sum Gardens), which provided a beautiful place to be on December nights. Tofino Winter Nights kicks off with the beloved Jingle into Christmas – an evening of mingling and shopping at local storefronts open late on the evening of December 1st. Jingle will also be paired with the Tofino Night Market put on by the Tofino Market from 4PM – 9PM December 1st.

There are a multitude of free events, from Breakfast with Santa to the Tofino Resort + Marina tradition of Sea of Lights happening December 9th, to an ornament-making workshop with Elizabeth George at the Tofino Visitor Centre and Roller Disco nights – we have your social calendar filled! A new addition to this year’s events is the Tofino Hot Cocoa Trail, also kicking off December 1st and running until December 31st. Cafes and restaurants will be offering a twist on the classic hot chocolate – a true culinary trail for you to try! With over 10 food and beverage businesses participating, this is sure to tickle your taste buds. You can direct guests to the blog post on our home page which links to both Tofino Winter Nights and the Tofino Hot Cocoa Trail.

Please join us in celebrating the season and let’s illuminate dark nights with warm gatherings!
