WINTER WANDER-LAND is BACK!!! And we’re taking it over two weekends AGAIN, with a few new things to offer.⁠ Carousels and firepits… blacksmiths and Santa… a fun adventure through our downtown shops and restaurants to collect stickers for really fabulous Downtown Dollars. You’ll want to be downtown in Market Square the last weekend in November and the first weekend in December.

Saturday and Sunday, November 25th & 26th AND December 2nd & 3rd, from 11am-5pm

Admission: Free

Some highlights of the season:

Carousel – a highlight of the season⁠

Cozy firepits to roast marshmallows and make s’mores⁠

Our artisan blacksmith, John Walker of Fallen Willow Forge, will be back to captivate the masses for the first Winter Wander-land weekend (November 25 & 26).

Santa is coming 12pm-3:30pm on December 2nd & 3rd.

We are thrilled our carousel is returning for another season. A highlight of the holiday season in Downtown Stratford Market Square. This year we’re delighted to have it, once again, run over two weekends.

The two firepit areas are also back. Supervised while your kiddos roast marshmallows for special DTS s’mores, come warm up your fingers and your toes.

One of the MOST EXCITING FEATURES of this year is our Winter Wanter-land Guide – which starts November 13th and runs until December 22nd. This features more than 75 downtown businesses that offer a validation sticker when you shop or dine. Collect 8 stickers and enter to win one of 3 Downtown Dollar prizes! WOW!!!!
