Waterford becomes Ireland's Christmas capital with the start of Winterval, which runs from Friday 17th November to Saturday 23rd December 2017.
Throughout Winterval, the Viking Triangle and the retail heart of the city come alive with Christmas markets, Santa’s Kingdom, Winterval illuminates light show, a new bigger ice rink at Winterval on Ice and so much more for young and old alike.
Welcome to the Wonderful world of Winterval's Santa's Kingdom. Be transported into the heart of Santa's busy work shop as he and his elves prepare for the big day.
While Mam and Dad relax and have a coffee the kids will be immersed with a huge range of activities that will keep those excited minds busy while they wait to see the man himself.
Our busy elves will cast a watching eye as you prepare your letter for Santa, create a special gift or have a snow ball fight in our snow pit.
If this gets all too much you can simply sit and watch our classic Christmas movies or create a master piece on our scribble walls.
There is lots to see and do and best of all there is never a boring queue!
