Begin this holiday season by spreading joy in our community! Join us for free hot chocolate, chili, live music and karaoke Santa.

We are back! This year we’re bringing a small-town feel to our community. We are hosting our second annual Christmas Walking Parade and Mini Market. Join us as we gather together with our neighbours safely outside and celebrate all that’s special about this time of year.

Join us on December 4, 2021 from 4pm-8pm at Willowdale Presbyterian Church. The parade is a joyful celebration and you can come dressed in your festive outfits as we walk along both Yonge Street and Beecroft Road. The Mini Market includes purchasing from local artisans, free hot chocolate, free chili, live entertainment, and karaoke Santa.

The message of Christmas is about faith, hope, and love. People from all backgrounds of faith, culture, and walks of life are welcome to join in.
