Evergreen Festival - Yarmouth

The Evergreen Festival will be making downtown Yarmouth merry, bright and full of holiday cheer!

The festival is a month long celebration running from November 25 - December 24.

You can expect to see lots more Christmas lights around Main Street and the downtown area! We have purchased red and white lights for the light poles on Main Street, giving an homage to Candy Cane Lane. Jim MacLeod Square will be decked out with holiday displays and don’t forget to check out the waterfront!

The music and merriness will be plentiful this month, be sure to check out Heritage Brewing Co for live music in the evenings and Sip Cafe for acoustic afternoon sessions.

We have got lots of fun holiday events planned. There is something for everyone! Kids colouring contest, scavenger hunts, gingerbread house making, as well as much much more. Be sure to register for events like Every Bloomin’ Things Holiday Centrepieces and our Santa Shuffle Fun Run/Walk!

Stay up to date with our calendar! Please check back for updated times, and locations for events!
