      The Christmas Market

      The Christmas Market returns to Simcoe Christmas Panorama after a successful debut in 2019. New for 2021, the Market stalls will be open from Thursday to Sunday, 6:00pm to 9:00pm every weekend leading up to Christmas. 

      Schedule:
      –  December 4th & 5th 
      –  December 9th, 10th, 11th & 12th
      –  December 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th
      –  December 23rd & 24th

      Price: $125.00/day

      Market cabins are 6’x8’ with shelving on the side and backwalls, a large counter surface for displays and selling, a space heater and lights. Each vendor is responsible for their own sales/cash. No additional heaters, lights or electrical devices of any kind are permitted. The cabins doors do lock but there is no overnight security so vendors should not leave their goods in the cabin overnight.

      Accepted vendors will need to show proof of insurance and provide full payment for the weekend(s) booked. Please note there may be additional requirements dependent on the products sold and will be shared with the vendor when they receive their confirmation. (ex. Food and drink vendors may need to submit additional information).
