What makes Christmas at Presqu’ile so special?
It’s the quality of this arts & crafts show and it’s the setting – Presqu’ile Provincial Park.
140 exhibitors are selected from a pool of quality submissions from across Ontario for the juried event which takes place on consecutive November weekends and on the Wednesday in-between. The event which has been held every November for over 20 years is organized by the Friends of Presqu’ile , one of the oldest and most active Friends groups in Ontario. Among unique items sold are original pieces of art, jewelry, handmade pottery, walking sticks, wreaths, and nativity scenes.
Visitors shop exhibitor displays in the Park’s Christmas House before heading to the tearoom next door at Stonehedge, a beautiful 1940s cottage. Hot tea is served with homemade rum cake which the Friends have become famous for. The cake is a nod to the 1920s and this area’s wild rum-running past.
Dates, times and more on this year’s show are found on the Friends of Presqu’ile web site.
