Check out what’s happening…
Start your visit at a Welcome Centre
Stop by our welcome centres at Martin and James St. on your way in for Christmas- themed kids activities, a layout of the festival and information on the Elf Scavenger Hunt.
Visit with Santa
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, right beside Knox Church Santa will be waiting to hear all those Christmas lists. Come on over between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.!
Elf on the Shelf Scavenger Hunt
Some of Santa’s elves have gone missing and have been spotted shopping in Downtown Milton. Visit the shops in Downtown Milton and spot one of the elves and record it on your card. You’ll get one entry into a draw for each elf that you find. Drop off your cards at one of the Welcome Centres for a chance to win a $150 Gift Card to Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada.
