Tis’ the season in King as the Township prepares to host its annual festive celebration, the One of a King Handmade Holiday Market, presented by event sponsor Rafat. The family-friendly event takes place at the King Heritage and Cultural Centre on Saturday, Nov. 25, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., and will feature photos with Santa, crafts, face painting, and holiday story time, as well as the lighting of a 20-foot Serbian spruce with over 400 feet of clear and multi-colored LED lights, topped with an LED starburst tree topper. The tree lighting ceremony takes place at 5:45 p.m.
More than 15 local vendors will be on-site outdoors in a heated tent, where visitors can browse and purchase one-of-a-kind items perfect for holiday gift-giving. From handmade crafts to artisanal treasures, there will be something for everyone.
“The One of a King Handmade Holiday Market is a fantastic way to support local businesses while picking up unique Christmas gifts on your holiday shopping list,” said Mayor Steve Pellegrini.
Adding to the holiday spirit, the Trees of Giving annual fundraiser will showcase creatively decorated real or artificial trees by local community groups, businesses and King Township Council. The theme for 2023 is ‘Festive Forest’. The trees will be displayed at the King Heritage and Cultural Centre from Nov. 18 to Dec. 16. Visitors can vote for their favorite tree by making a $2 donation, with all proceeds benefiting the Oak Ridges Trail Association.
This is a free event and no registration is required. Ample parking will be available at the King Township Municipal Centre, with complimentary shuttle buses departing to the event every 15 minutes.
