The Elves are busy stocking the shelves for Christmas at Presqu'ile
Lots of gifts to choose from
The Show takes place at Presqu’ile Provincial Park, Brighton, Ontario. You’ll enjoy free admission to the Park, the Show and parking.
All goods will be displayed at Christmas House, a 10-room Heritage Home by the Lake. After shopping, you can walk next door to Stonehedge—a Heritage Mansion—sit in the Tea Room and enjoy the now famous Rum Cake while overlooking Lake Ontario and talking about all the wonderful items you purchased! And just down the road is a third exciting building—the Park’s Lighthouse Interpretive Centre located right next to the Presqu’ile Lighthouse.
The Stonehedge Tearoom is always a favourite destination
The Lighthouse Interpretive Centre, adjacent to the Presqu'ile Lighthouse, is transformed during the Show into an Art Gallery featuring the work of two well-known professional artists. Doug Comeau's work is unbelievable! The realistic quality this self-taught artist achieves, in the medium of graphite, charcoal and coloured pencil, brings his subjects to life! Linda Barber works in acrylics with as brush or palette knife to bring her talent to the fore in waterscapes, birches, landscapes and fields and meadows. Her command of colour is amazing! The art sale and the Friends of Presqu’ile Gift Shop will be open from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. during the Show.
Christmas at Presqu'ile Arts and Crafts Show 2017 is presented by The Friends of Presqu'ile Provincial Park—a volunteer run charitable organization. All proceeds from the Show and Raffle are invested in The Friends’ interpretive and educational programs in Presqu’ile Provincial Park.
Be sure to visit Christmas at Presqu’ile Arts and Crafts Show November 4, 5, 8, 11, and 12, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
