    Over 120 vendors display crafts from near and far that produce a kaleidoscope of colour as you roam the streets and parks.  Local farm markets display an array of fresh produce and delicious preserves.  Check out our local retail stores for unique gifts and decor.

    Children's laughter mingles with the strains of fiddle music from the Main Stage where on-going daily entertainment delights the crowds.  Savour ice cold beer or a glass of Niagara wine in our adjoining fully licensed Spirit Garden.   Satruday night enjoy an old-fashioned FREE Street Party.
