An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until January 4, 2021

Free

Beginning November 20th our historic downtown streets will be decorated with over 8,000 lights, garland, festive banners and brightly lit snowflakes. In addition, main street windows will be decorated for the annual Window Contest adding to the festive atmosphere.

Travel south to the Festival of Lights – a 5km self-guided driving tour beginning at Victoria Park and meandering throughout the neighbourhood south of Dundas – offering a safe alternative and magical experience for the holidays. Once you have seen the lights, head downtown for local shopping, dining and selfies in the giant santa chair.

On Thursday and Friday evenings as well as Saturday in the daytime hop on a brightly lit red pedicab and enjoy a tour down the main street and around Victoria Park to view Festival of Lights displays. The Festival of Lights is best enjoyed after dark and will be on until January 4th, 2021.

Free Pedicab Tours for two are available Thursdays 5-8pm, Fridays 5-8pm and Saturdays 11-3pm until December 19th. There are limited timeslots so pre-booking is recommended. (downtownbelleville.ca/enchanted)

This year more than ever it’s important to make a conscious decision to “Choose Local First’. The Downtown District has made it easy to do. Shopping is available regular hours and in addition, stores will be open late Thursday and Friday nights from November 20 – December 19. Saturday morning Breakfast Club will be available at several downtown locations so you can fuel up before a day of shopping.

Over 15 restaurants and cafes offer indoor dining and takeout for your convenience.

A number of retail stores and galleries in the Downtown District offer local artisan products and unique art works. Just another way to help you ‘Choose Local First’.
