Christmas @ Presqu’ile 2020 is cancelled.

Christmas at Presqu’ile 2020 is cancelled.  We know that is disappointing news for vendors, artists, volunteers, and shoppers.

This is our signature event that has been running for 27 years.  It is our biggest fundraiser, for which we spend most of the year preparing.  This was not a decision we made lightly.

Back in June our Board of Directors agreed to cancel, out of respect for our vendors, who would be spending personal time preparing goods over the summer, and out of respect for the health of the public and our volunteers.

Yes, we thought of creative ways to keep portions of the event going, but we decided to give our volunteers a season of rest.  We encourage others to embrace this opportunity to direct the time, money and energy you would have spent on this event in new ways.

Missing the Stonehedge Tea Room? 

Call up a friend and schedule a real or virtual teatime.  Enjoy a hot drink, a treat, and the connection we all need right now!

Missing the volunteer experience?

Seek out a neighbour who needs some help with their fall clean up or grocery shopping. 

Looking for unique gifts?

Search your community for small businesses and artisans to support.  Or learn a new skill and make something yourself.

Want to support the Friends of Presqu’ile Park?

Consider making a personal donation or purchasing a Memorial Tree in honour of someone special via our website.

Missing the fall beauty of Presqu’ile?

Visit your local park to experience the leaves underfoot and the cool fresh air.  Time in nature is good for the body, mind, and soul.

We are thankful for all of the vendors, artists, shoppers and volunteers who have supported Christmas at Presqu’ile in the past.  Your contributions have made a lasting impact on Presqu’ile’s education and nature preservation programs and recreational facilities.  We wish you a healthy and restful holiday season!
