From Winter-Themed Whiskey Bars to Pop-Up Candy Bar Grottos

These festive brand activations range from winter-themed whiskey bars to candy bar grottos that promote a new holiday snack range. Whether celebrating Christmas, Easter or Halloween, these festive brand activations use publicity stunts, pop-up retailer stores and sensory events to leave a lasting impression on consumers.

Illustrating the power of experiential marketing tactics, examples like Cadbury's cream egg cafe celebrate Easter while appealing to Millennial audiences rather than just kids. Furthermore, personal care pop-ups like Well + Good's 'Wellness Wonderland' store and RBC's Avion Holiday Shop -- a rejuvenating spa meant to reward the bank's Avion card holders -- promote luxury and relaxation while fostering stronger relationships between a trusted brand and their target audience.

Food and beverage-themed pop-ups like a holiday pantry by President's Choice and Old Speckled Hen's 'Hunt for a Hen' scavenger hunt round out this list of festive brand activations. The examples commemorate important seasonal celebrations while promoting a branded product or service in a memorable way.
