The popular Explore the Shore event returns with another holiday offering designed to promote local businesses along County Road 50.
The Explore the Shore Christmas Market, which happens on November 23 (10am to 4pm) and November 24 (11am to 4pm) will give shoppers the perfect opportunity to buy goods from a wide range of artisans and local vendors.
This is the second Christmas Market hosted by the Explore the Shore group, which celebrated the 10th anniversary of its popular summer event this year.
“We had a great turnout at this year’s Explore the Shore, and we know our visitors are always looking for new opportunities to buy local while taking in the incredible sights and sounds of County Road 50,” said Carol Quick, event organizer and owner of Quick’s Wicks in Colchester.
This year’s Christmas Market builds on the success from 2018 and has expanded to two locations: the Colchester Community Centre (100 Jackson Street) and Christ Church Colchester (190 Bagot Street).
The event will also feature a decorated path between the two venues, as well as horse and carriage rides on Saturday from 12:30 to 2:30 (weather permitting). The Christmas Market also coincides with EPIC Wineries’ Taste of the Season event.
“This is a great chance to finish some early Christmas shopping while enjoying the incredible businesses and wineries that call County Road 50 home,” Quick added.
