A Main Street Christmas
Christmas Tree Lighting
The Schomberg Village Association would like to announce the 11th Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony on Sunday, November 25th. Come and enjoy the start of the festive season with some holiday music and carols. There will be hot drinks and cookies to help us enjoy the evening.
Join us at 5:00, the official tree lighting ceremony will be at 5:15 p.m., when the switch is flipped and the lights begin to sparkle and shine on Main Street.
Our living Christmas tree, kindly loaned to us by the Hoare family at 235 Main St, is 40 feet tall and illuminated by hundreds of twinkling lights and ornaments. Please join us there for the First Annual Holiday Tree Lighting!
Welcome to Schomberg
Schomberg is a small village located at the north end of King Township.
Nestled on the north shoulder of the Oak Ridges Moraine, the Village and its surrounding area is a wonderful place to live, work and play.
In addition to the friendly community atmosphere, the village plays host to a number of activities throughout the year.
In the early winter, the Dufferin Marsh Committe sponsors a Community Skate and Bonfire on the Dufferin Marsh.
The Schomberg Agricultural Society hosts the annual Schomberg Agricultural Fair in May and the Community Bonfire in the Fall.
This year marks the ninth incarnation of the Schomberg Village Street Gallery.
The Schomberg Village Street Gallery turns Main St into an art gallery and sale in September and activities for the year wrap up in the first week of December with the "A Main St Christmas" celebration - an evocation of a country Victorian Christmas, with parades, carolers, food and fun.
Throughout the year, shops (both along Main St, and in the surrounding area) offer both special treasures and day to day items - underlining the fact that this is a real living community - not an artificial marketing opportunity.
We'd love for you to drop by and see!
