The Giving Tree:
Everyone deserves a gift at Christmas, and you can give the best gift of all- A beautifully handcrafted local piece of art to place under THE GIVING TREE- for someone in need. Attend our event, purchase a small gift and we'll have it wrapped and donated to a local Christmas Gift Drive.
Indulge in the Mistletoe Bistro with delicious savory dishes for lunch and dinner, plus a winning dessert selection: English trifle, pumpkin cheesecake, cranberry scones, delicious homemade pies, and more.
Local Wines & Craft Beer
Christmas is a time to celebrate with friends and family! You and your loved ones can enjoy local wines, beer and cider while you stroll through the lanes of Art & Crafts, and discover the perfect gift to give them (Or yourself!)
Santa's Elf Stations:
Christmas just wouldn't be the same without Santa's Workshop! Artfest Kids will be hosting Elf Stations for children to create holiday craft gifts. Kids LOVE creating, and you'll bring home a piece of art by your favourite artist- your child! Perfect for making memorable and collectable homemade holiday gifts.
To open the event with a touch of Christmas class, the Kingston’s award winning Town Crier will officially open the Gala Night on Thursday evening. You don't want to miss this!
Once you find the perfect gift for the ones you love, bring them to our gift wrapping station and for a small fee we will beautifully wrap your gifts, just how they were meant to be! Proceeds to local charities.
