VICTORIAN CHRISTMAS MARKET

A highlight of the Weekend is the open-air Victorian Christmas Market on Queen Street. Reminiscient of European Christmas markets, it will feature a treasure trove of artisan wares, local crafts, and delicious foods (for immediate consumption and gifting!) in a friendly, enjoyable shopping atmosphere complete with a Christmas-themed petting zoo, fire pits, carolers, visits from Santa and Mrs. Claus and much more! 

Market Times: Friday 5pm - 8pm | Sat 10am - 8pm | Sunday 11am - 5pm
