Oodles of Free Family Activities Planned for Old-Fashioned Christmas – Art & Craft Sale

Save the date! On Sunday, December 1st from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. the Goulbourn Museum will be hosting an Old-Fashioned Christmas – Art & Craft Sale.

Get an old-fashioned photo taken with Santa and 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 fun and 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 even get a handmade skipping rope to take home!

Families can don period costumes, pose for a photo with Santa in our Village Store, and take home a vintage keepsake of the day. There will be free hot chocolate and hot apple cider for everyone, and Pizza All’Antica will be onsite making authentic Neapolitan wood fired mobile pizza.

Our list of handmade vendors features something for everyone including jewelry, woodwork, pottery, Christmas greenery, stained glass art, hand-painted textile, chocolates, baked goodies, natural soaps, hair accessories, and more!

Sure hope you’ll join us!
