Warm up your holiday spirit with a community event that brings Port Hope visitors and neighbours together for an old-fashioned carol sing and festive light ceremony in Memorial Park every November.

Walk down main street by candlelight and kick off the festive season

The Candlelight Festival begins with carolling along Walton Street to Memorial Park for the magical lighting of holiday decorations. Stay for the live music and beauty of the night! Stop in at the Capitol Theatre nearby for the Capitol Christmas festivities.

See the bandshell and trees glitter with thousands of lights

Join us for a memorable evening for the whole family – and come welcome Santa to town at our Santa Claus Parade the next day.
