Olde Fashioned Christmas started 35 years ago as a way for local merchants to say thank you to our customers - and so the tradition of going from store to store and meeting your neighbours continues.

We invite you and your family to spend the day with us at the annual Olde Fashioned Christmas celebration. We have spiced up the traditional Hidden Santa hunt with wonderful prize baskets, full of donations from your local merchants. Three of the correct entries will be drawn for the Grand Prizes on stage at 9 pm.

Christmas is a time for fellowship, joy and goodwill among all. Seasons Greetings!

Apple Tastings Offered Throughout The Blue Mountains in October!

Beginning September 30th and running for four consecutive weekends, local producers and businesses are partnering with the Town to provide complimentary apples for tasting at participating businesses in The Blue Mountains.

A different variety of apple will be featured every weekend, at local participating businesses. On-hand will also be tried and tested apple-based recipes, a list of local apple markets and stands where people can purchase apples to take home, information about the Georgian Bay Fruit Growers Association and of course the Apple Pie Trail.

This initiative is designed to continue to highlight the important role of the agricultural community and small business in our area and profile the incredible produce available here in The Blue Mountains.
