Meet Me Under the Mistletoe: Capture the Joy of the Season at Fairmont Empress

Exchange a kiss or vow beneath the magical mistletoe at Canada's Castle on the Coast for a chance to win a two-night stay on Fairmont Gold


Fairmont Empress invites you to spread holiday cheer this season by sharing an expression of affection under its new twinkling mistletoe installation. ‘Meet Me Under the Mistletoe’ is on display in the exterior courtyard next to the hotel’s reception lobby for the month of December.

‘Meet Me Under the Mistletoe’ welcomes locals and guests to celebrate the timeless tradition of sharing a moment of merriment beneath an embellished mistletoe. A massive canopy of green foliage interwoven with white lights elegantly suspends in an outdoor archway, setting the backdrop for a picture perfect moment in Victoria. The centerpiece serves as a focal point for guests to capture the magic of the holidays.
