Christmas Market **CANCELLED**
Ken Whillans Square | Friday, November 20, Saturday, November 21 & Sunday, November 22
the situation in Brampton is critical as we work to flatten the second wave of
the COVID-19 pandemic.
In light of
this, based on the recommendations of Peel Public Health, the City of Brampton
is cancelling this year’s Christmas Market scheduled for November 20-22. We
will consult with Peel Public Health and Market vendors on rescheduling this
event to a later date, when it is deemed safe to do so. Initially, the Market
was set to run in a healthy and safe way like this year’s outdoor Farmers’
Market, but with cases increasing and new measures from the Government of
Ontario and Peel Public Health, we must lead by example as we ask our community
to do the right thing and stay home.
We continue to
ask residents to stay home when possible and avoid gathering with those outside
their household. We know this is difficult, especially during times of
celebration, but these sacrifices will help save lives.
