Christmas Celebration and Market: Three magical family days!
This year again, downtown Rosemère will be livelier than ever from Friday to Sunday, December 5 to 7, as the magic of the Christmas Celebration and Market returns to the parking lot of the municipal library at 339 Grande-Côte. Bringing families together, this event’s success is a foregone conclusion thanks to a close collaboration between the Town and L’Autre Marché, joined in this endeavour by a number of well-known merchants.
Festivities will start at 5 p.m., Friday, December 5, with an ice sculpture demonstration and the opening of the Christmas Market where you’ll find local produce and original gift items. The ambience will heat up quickly thanks to a candlelight parade, entertainment and surprises as of 7 p.m., followed by dancing to the music of the Rosemère Big Band as of 7:30 p.m. It should be noted that, for the occasion, Grande-Côte Road between Hector and De l’Église streets will be closed to automotive traffic from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.
Delightful surprises await the entire family throughout the second day, Saturday, December 6, with the Market and its food trucks, Santa, sleigh rides, a Christmas story, and a concert by the Petit Chœur de Rosemère. Finally, on Sunday, December 7, the Chœur classique des Basses-Laurentides will be presenting three concerts at the library while outside, the Market will continue to offer its products.
"Come out with the entire family, shop and have a good time,” urges mayor Madeleine Leduc, noting that all activities except for the Christmas Market and food trucks are free.
Among the gift items at the Market, you’ll find jewellery handcrafted by Marina Pop, clothes by Blank et Voyou as well as bags and aprons handmade by Campagne de ville. The offering of local products includes sausage and pickles by the Réserve du comptoir, goat from the green farm Aux Petits sabots, duck and poultry from Multiferme, cheeses and meats from La Suisse normande, spreads from Le Sucrier fou, organic maple products from Les Fardoches, macaroons and marshmallows from Distribution Berlingot and desserts from Tarterie La Madeleine. Rounding off the offering are fair trade coffees from the Brûlerie Santropol, Zyo teas and wine products from the Domaine du petit Saint-Joseph and Domaine Labranche.
