Chemainus Events

Saturday, December 6, 2014 – 9th Annual Christmas Walking Tour – 10am to 4pm in downtown Chemainus, BC – a 32-minute trip from Nanaimo, BC

Come join in the holiday spirit from both business owners and local residents alike in Chemainus BC for this annual Christmas tour, now in its ninth year.

Walk or drive your way through downtown Chemainus and visit 32 local businesses and organizations who will also be celebrating the festive spirit – look for the door marked with a snowman to find them. Explore, shop, and enjoy a variety of treats, crafts, music, hourly specials, demos, and more. Participating merchants and groups include 49th Parallel Grocery, the Twisted Sisters Tea Room, Hansel & Gretel’s Candy Co., and The Flowering Tree Natural Spa, to name a few.

Stop by the Chemainus Museum if you’re a history buff for a special preview of the up and coming new expansion. Live musical entertainment will be featured at the Twisted Sisters Tea Room, or you can participate in caroling in front of the United Church at 2pm. Stick around if you have a camera handy for opportunities to take a picture with Santa and Frosty. There will be a grand prize draw there also at 4:30pm.

Maps are available for visitors in the Chemainus foods parking lot and at the Visitor Centre.
