Your destination

for Holiday magic

Until December 24, both young and old are invited to discover the magic of the Holidays at Complexe Desjardins.

The program: a meeting with the real Santa Claus, a carousel ride, a ride on a little train, face painting done by professionals for your children, and several shows (theatre, dance) which will amaze all audiences, not to mention an immersive show with sounds, lights and water jets (Fontaine Boréale).

One single destination to charm you to experience the magic of Christmas and find a host of shops, restaurants, and services that will make your holiday shopping more productive and fun!
