Global Winter Wonderland

Presented by International Culture Exchange Group at Cal Expo

Global Winter Wonderland is coming back to Sacramento for a third season with an exciting new theme — Holiday Fun for Everyone! The magical world of light spanning 17 acres at Cal Expo will unveil all new attractions, including massive illuminated lanterns, thrilling rides, an ice skating rink, entertainers and interactive holiday activities.

Global Winter Wonderland will build an interactive Craft Center to inspire magical moments for children of all ages. The Craft Center will feature a variety of DIY stations where visitors can create their own ornaments, decorate lanterns or write a letter to Santa Claus. Children can also take their annual photo with Santa at Global Winter Wonderland and the Holiday Ice Rink will return for guests who wish to add an evening on the ice to their holiday experience.

Out on the grounds, guests will enjoy a totally new experience as they take in iconic scenes from Toyland, Candyland and the North Pole to celebrate the new theme, Holiday Fun for Everyone. All of the illuminated lanterns are currently under construction, hand-crafted in silk and steel by talented artisans. Event organizers are also searching the globe to bring unique entertainers to perform in the Circus of Light, an action-packed variety show on the main stage.
