Usher the holiday season into town with the Streetsville BIA’s annual (and growing!) ‘Christmas in the Village’ festival and market! Unique vendors will be lit up and lining Queen St. S. from November 25th-26th for all your Christmas shopping needs.

Entertain the little ones at the Children’s Craft Area where kids will make holiday themed crafts and get pictures with their favourite princesses. No need to stand in line at the mall – Santa will be taking time from his busy schedule to take pictures and listen to those ever-growing Christmas lists in Santa’s Village. Afterwards, chug on over to Reindeer Ridge via adorable mini train to enjoy an array of winter games and, on Sunday, Santa’s crew of live reindeer! Looking for another form of transportation? Try taking a whimsical horse and carriage ride through town! The Streetsville BIA will also be sponsoring a free skate at Vic Johnston on Sunday (11:00am-12:20pm), so remember to sharpen those blades!

From 2:00pm-9:00pm on Saturday and 11:00am-4:00pm on Sunday, join everyone a holiday craft brew or mulled wine while enjoying live entertainment for the whole family. Ice carving demonstrations, Christmas choirs, and even a Tom Jones impersonator are just a few acts lined up to take center stage at the Hospitality Lounge (Streetsville Village Square). Take a load off in cozy Muskoka chairs, and remember to bring your appetite – some seriously delicious, mouth-watering maple taffy will be available in the Square, not to mention local restaurants and unique food trucks will be serving all sorts of goodies all weekend long!

Don’t forget to grab a ‘Christmas in the Village’ information booklet on your way to the festival – they’re packed with interesting Christmas facts and helpful information about the event!
