Christmas in Clarington Country

Now that the apple harvest is over, we are thinking about the upcoming Holidays.  Getting together with family & friends… food & wine… gift giving…   It’s the most wonderful time of the year – other than apple season, of course.

Time to get into the Holiday Spirit!

We invite you to come visit 6 locations hosting Christmas in Clarington Country, a self-guided tour November 24 – 26 from 10 – 4.  Each location is offering something special just for this weekend.  At Archibald’s, you can visit with local artists displaying & selling their art work.

Susan Boles

Susan is a mixed media artist.  She works with acrylics and water colour, mixed with ephemera and collage.  Here’s just one example of her art.

Food & Wine Tasting

We’ll be doing some food & wine matching for this tour.  It just may give you some ideas for entertaining during the Holiday Season.  Not sure which wine goes with what?  “There’s always a wine for that”!  We are happy to make suggestions.  We would also love to help get your Gift giving all wrapped up too.  Come see our Holiday Basket display.  Something for every taste & budget.  Don’t see what you’re looking for?  We will custom design just for you.
