Mayor's Message

On behalf of King Township Council, welcome to the November edition of the King Bulletin.

It’s hard to believe we’re quickly approaching the holiday season. I’m excited to say there are several fantastic events coming up, including the always popular Main Street Christmas in Schomberg on Saturday, Dec. 3. The event is presented by the Schomberg Village Association, a non-profit organization.

After the pandemic-related restrictions of the last couple of years, it’s going to be great to see everyone at the fully restored event.

There will be street performers, carollers, children's entertainers, fireside readings, children's crafts, holiday creations, an art and craft show, and, of course, Santa Claus.

The event starts with the exciting Santa's Parade at 4 p.m. where local businesses and groups participate with creative floats and several bands march while playing rousing tunes.

Between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m., you are invited to wander up and down Main Street to enjoy the sights and sounds of a bygone era with carollers singing and music playing, enjoying food and the Christmas Market in the newly refurbished Schomberg Community Hall.

The evening is brought to a spectacular close with the Farmers' Parade of Lights brought to you by the local farming community with farm equipment driven down Main Street.

If you’re looking to get into the festive spirit even earlier, be sure to drop by Art Society King’s first annual Deck the Walls Art Show and Sale. It will be held on Saturday, Nov. 12 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the King Heritage and Cultural Centre at 2920 King Road.

Sixteen juried artists/artisans have been selected for this event.

Please continue to stay safe, volunteer and shop locally as much as you can.

For the exhibition Poetry in Stitches, the Georgina Fibre Artists have looked to the poets as muses to create a series of new fibre artworks, each one inspired by a poem.

This exhibition features a variety of styles and interpretations of mixed media fibre art, showcasing the work of four local artists with a variety of backgrounds and artistic interests.

Poetry in Stitches is on display in the main hallway of the King Township Municipal Centre until December 16.
