Join us for a memorable evening of joy, lights and community. The festivities begin at 4:30pm in the Village so bundle up in your warmest jackets, toques and mittens, and spend the early evening wandering through the Christmas booths on display. Gather your friends and family and sneak into the jolly man's chair for a polaroid Christmas photo, our elves won't tell Santa if you don't!

The festival fun will continue until 7:00pm, ending with our famous Christmas Eve Fireworks display right at 7:00pm. Best viewing is from the Village between The Woods and Stonebridge.
