The public is invited to attend Winter Celebration on Saturday, February 11, 2023, from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Rideau Hall. Once again, this event is officially part of Winterlude.  All activities are free of charge.


Young and old alike will have fun outside while taking part in winter sports and activities on the grounds of the official residence and workplace of the governor general.


Discover Rideau Hall’s beautiful winter grounds and learn about how you can be active outside during the coldest months of the year. 


Lace up your skates in the Winter Pavilion, a stunning heritage building, and skate on the outdoor rink.


Stop at the residence to visit the State rooms where the governor general fulfills official duties, welcomes dignitaries and honours Canadians.
