Parade of Windows
So many of our downtown businesses put a lot of effort into their Christmas Window Displays. Be sure to take a tour of the many windows and enjoy the spirit of the holidays as you do your Christmas shopping downtown.
Due to COVID restrictions, Santa Claus hasn’t been able to appear in malls or parades and he’s getting a bit lonely up in the North Pole.
Santa has teamed up with YMCA Sudbury and AtmostFX to set up a virtual communication station in his workshop so he and his elves can visit virtually with the kids of Sudbury.
Visit with Santa on Saturdays, December 5th, 12th and 19th from 11am - 3pm

Downtown Sudbury Makers Christmas Market
The Downtown Sudbury Makers Christmas Market is a new version of a classic idea. Instead of the traditional market format, find local makers inside existing downtown businesses!
Saturdays only from 11 am - 3 pm.
Local makers have had a difficult year with the cancellation of the many events and festivals at which they sell their wares. In an effort to support these members of our community, many downtown businesses will be opening their doors. The added bonus for downtown customers is that there will be a variety of new things to find during your Christmas Shopping.
Be sure to drop by your favourite downtown shops and explore locally crafted products for a limited time.
Please ensure to follow businesses' COVID guidelines including Social Distancing, Face Coverings and Capacity Limits.
Visit the following participating businesses to discover local Makers:
The Cedar Nest Décor Cafe
Stitch & Stone
