Old-Fashioned Christmas & Artisan Market

Scenes from last year’s Old-Fashioned Christmas

Goulbourn Museum will be hosting an Old-Fashioned Christmas & Outdoor Artisan Market on Sunday, November 30th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Take an old-fashioned photo with Santa and get a head-start on your Christmas shopping at this holiday celebration featuring local artisans, baked goodies, old world entertainment and festive crafts.

There will be oodles of free activities for all ages. Children can write letters to Santa with expert help from The Calligraphy Society of Ottawa, play with old-fashioned games and wooden toys, and watch rope making demonstrations by Tom Stephenson of The Kettle Boys. Each child will get their very own handmade skipping rope to take home.

Families can pose for a photo with Santa in our Village Store, enjoy free hot chocolate and hot apple cider compliments of the Walmart Kanata South Supercentre, roast marshmallows by the fire, and buy an authentic Neapolitan wood fired pizza from Pizza All’Antica for lunch.

This year’s list of handmade vendors features something for everyone including jewelry, wood turned pens, pottery, knitwear, stained glass art, photography, chocolates, baked goodies, natural soaps, and more!

There will be indoor and outdoor activities so be sure to wear warm boots and a jacket so you can enjoy all the fun. For regular updates, join our Facebook Event.
