2018 St. Jacobs Sparkles is on the Horizon, November 15 - 18, 2018!

There will be a twinkle in the sky and magic in the air during St. Jacobs Sparkles!  Plan to celebrate this 4-day celebration that ushers in the holiday shopping season in the village of St. Jacobs on November 15,16,17,18, 2018.

Shopkeepers will be busy as elves preparing festive samples, promotions, in-store sales and contests just for you! They'll be rolling out the red carpet and keeping their doors open late so you can enjoy shopping amongst 1000s of twinkling lights in this pretty village, decked for the holidays. There will be free activities along the streets, including horse-drawn trolley rides, Victorian carolers, a visit from Santa, a weiner roast over the bonfire, a luxury limobus shuttle and more! Feeling hungry?  Reserve a seat in one of the village's restaurants or enjoy some street food from an outdoor vendor.
