Enjoy the Collingwood Christmas Market in your festive historic Downtown!

November 24, 2021
Christmas Market and Concerts

Mark your calendars for each Friday evening in December to experience the tradition of the outdoor Christmas Market in beautiful downtown Collingwood.  Starting on Friday, December 3 and continuing each Friday evening from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. until December 17, the downtown will come alive with lights, entertainment, food, and fun.
The stores are full of wonderful gift ideas and Christmas cheer. The selection will be expanded with the return of your favourite Farmers’ Market vendors who will line the sidewalks of Hurontario Street during the Friday evenings.
The downtown has been dressed in beautiful holiday lights for you to enjoy – including festival ‘selfie’ stations – even the ‘CWOOD’ sign at Town Hall has turned red and green in celebration of the Christmas season.
The evening will be full of entertainment for you, friends, and family to enjoy! Enjoy the magic of the dancers from Fleetwood Dancentre and 5678 Dance as they perform in the windows and on the street.  You will be amazed by the strolling entertainers – stilt walkers, lighted hula hoops, jugglers and more!
And of course, a Christmas celebration wouldn’t be complete without a visit from Santa himself. Santa is looking forward to visits with children of all ages in his big red sleigh each evening beside the brightly lit Christmas tree. Make sure to tell him the wishes on your Christmas list this year.
