A wish is more than just a finite experience.
It is a gift of infinite HOPE.

Welcome to the magical world of wishes! Here, hope flies on wings of whimsy and everything is possible.

The Calendar of Wishes is a Make-A-Wish® initiative. This larger than life, wish-granting advent calendar is making the wishes for some very deserving children come true again this year. Thank you to our community, corporate sponsors and partners who came together to make the Calendar of Wishes a reality.

Make more wishes possible.

Located in downtown Edmonton, doors on the Calendar of Wishes will open to reveal a wish that has been granted. Whimsical and inspiring, the advent calendar has been developed to increase awareness of the stories that fuel the passion of Make-A-Wish® and demonstrate that each wish is as unique and special as the child who wished it.

Located in Make-A-Wish®’s own “Winter Wish Square” (Abbey Glen Park: 10107 – 10147 Jasper Avenue), the fifth annual Calendar of Wishes will launch December 1st and actively run until December 24th. Edmontonians can continue to enjoy the calendar until early January.
