Celebrate the Magic of Christmas is a free annual event in Galt in early December. Beginning in the morning and lasting throughout the day, the event features many fun activities including visits from Santa, face painting, and food. Celebrate the Magic of Christmas takes place at the Cambridge Farmers’ Market.
In addition to visiting with Santa Claus, his wife Mrs. Claus, and the elves, other fun aspects of the day include mailing letters to Santa, horse-drawn carriage rides, carollers, crafts, and live music. In past years, there has also been magic, juggling, and a town crier!
For adults, the event is an opportunity to shop and enjoy delicious food. Stores are open late, and there are 26 different restaurants and cafés in Galt for visitors to choose from! These restaurants and cafés include dining opportunities such as Koala Bear Grill and Chill, the Kiwi Gastropub and Monigram Coffee Roasters.
Celebrate the Magic of Christmas is hosted by the Galt on the Grand Business Improvement Association and takes place at the Cambridge Farmers’ Market, a venue open since 1830. The current Farmers’ Market operates within two buildings built in 1887 and 1896.
