Have a “Very St. Marys” Christmas!

Contact Us

The festive season starts this weekend.

The first snow has fallen, the garland is hung, and the lights are strung – just in time for Christmas to return to St. Marys!

Beginning this Friday, November 18 and continuing until Sunday, November 20, the Downtown Merchants’ Open House is the perfect opportunity to cross everyone off your gift list. Participating merchants are “paying the tax” all weekend long! Look for extended shopping hours on Friday, free horse-drawn wagon rides, a Warming Centre and live music on Saturday, and a farmers’ market, Mr. and Mrs. Claus and Victorian carolers on Sunday.

Also on Friday, the fabulous WinterLights will be lit for the season live at 7:00 p.m. Some special guests will help turn on this beloved display – be sure to join us at Milt Dunnell Field! Enjoy the display nightly from 5:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m. until Sunday, January 1, 2023. Donations to the display are gratefully appreciated online (www.townofstmarys.com/winterlights), at the donor wall or at Waving Santa.

On Saturday, stop by the St. Marys Craft Show at the Pyramid Recreation Centre. The show will run from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and will feature over 100 artisans. Admission to the show is free and a delicious lunch is available for purchase, with proceeds supporting the St. Marys Friendship Centre.

There’s still time to enter your float or financially support the Kinsmen Santa Claus Parade, happening on Friday, November 25 at 7:00 p.m. As during past parades, parking on Queen Street from Water to Church is prohibited during the parade. Closures will begin at 4:00 p.m. on November 25. Visit www.stmaryskinsmen.com for more information about the parade route, donations and entering a float.
