Christmas Market **CANCELLED**

Ken Whillans Square |​ Friday, November 20, Saturday, November 21 & Sunday, November 22


We recognize 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.
