Cupid’s Carnival Admission – By Donation

You only need to make ONE donation for your whole party, but please let us know how many people are attending in the Number of People Attending field during checkout. If you want multiple tax receipts, please checkout individually. 

Please adjust the value below (default is set at $25, but you can add any number from $0) to match your intended donation amount. Please note: To complete your purchase if your donation is $0, enter coupon code DONATION during checkout (the second green bar above Billing Details). Some browsers may correct a $0 donation to $25 (the default) during checkout, and the coupon code will correct this.

Any problems? Email holidays@abbeygardens.ca and we’ll make sure you’re on the list!

Donations above $25 qualify for tax receipts. Please ensure your mailing address is correct if your donation qualifies for a tax receipt.

You can make one donation for everyone in your party, and indicate the total number in your group in the Order Notes section!


Celebrate Valentine’s Day with all the things you LOVE about winter in Haliburton – join us Saturday February 10 for our third annual Cupid’s Carnival!
This year’s carnival has something for everyone, no matter your age or who you’re bringing as a date! Skate under the marquee lights all afternoon on our skating rink, and warm up with a hot chocolate or a cocktail from the Love Potion bar trailer.
Take a break in our Carnival Midway, featuring fun midway style games and prizes, and warm up by the fire pits with delicious treats from the snack bar. Hit up the photo booth for a romantic snapshot, or pose with the Abbey Gardens ponies for the perfect souvenir.
Don’t have the perfect gift for your Valentine yet? Check out our artisan market inside the old brewery building, where we’ll be showcasing handcrafted goods from local vendors.
Bringing the kiddos and looking for some active outdoor fun? Unscramble a secret winter message for a fun prize as you explore the trails, uncovering clues in our Winter Scramble. At the end of the trail you’ll find yourself at Big Pit Mountain, our toboggan hill!
Admission is by donation. While we will have a check in table at the event with maps, we encourage you to RSVP in advance by registering online so that we can plan to have enough prizes, drinks, and food for all attendees!

All proceeds from the Cupid’s Carnival go to support Abbey Gardens children’s programs!

NOTE: Pre-registration is not mandatory, but helps us plan ahead! We don’t want to run out of food or drinks, or not have as many activities because we estimate attendance to be low, so if you plan on coming please pre-register so we can make sure to have an amazing event waiting for you!
