There's nothing like a fresh dusting of snow to make one think of holiday preparations and the Christmas season ahead.
Unless of course it's attending St. Jacobs Sparkles, a village-wide open house of festive merriment and spectactular shopping throughout the village of St. Jacobs, an annual event that has gained immensely in popularity over the years since it was launched in the 1990s.
Weave in and out of one-of-a-kind stores to find special promotions and gifts for everyone on your list (and something for you too) while enjoying free activities on the street such as wandering carollers, horse drawn trolley rides, a barrel burn hosted by local volunteer firefighters to warm up by, and so much more.
It's taking place from Thursday November 14 through Sunday November 17, 2019.
Get all the details and learn about extended evening shopping hours, food and dining options, Santa's scheduled arrival and more, by visiting the Village Shops Facebook Events page or checking out the Events page of the St. Jacobs BIA website (Business Improvement Association).
As usual, park for Free in the village municipal P lot on Albert Street or -- during St. Jacobs Sparkles 2019 -- take advantage of Free Parking & Limo Shuttle from Calvary Church provided by Brentwood Livery (see schedule).
If you are coming from afar, check out accommodation choices at top hotels nearby in the St. Jacobs Market district.
While St. Jacobs Sparkles in November is one of the most-loved experiences in St. Jacobs, remember that village of St. Jacobs shops and restaurants are open all year around, so make St. Jacobs your first destination for fashion, decor, gift, and good food needs, and discover the special difference of shopping "outside the box" in a unique Ontario town.
