Stratford Schools’ Holiday Market

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas so it’s perfect timing for the annual Stratford Schools Holiday Market which will be taking place this Friday, November 16 from 5-9 and Saturday, November 17 from 9-5. This is a major fundraiser for both schools and all of the proceeds this year will be going to our new playground. We hope that everyone will stop by and check out our 100 awesome vendors and maybe get some holiday shopping done. There are Christmas decorations, wood working, toys, clothing, bath and body products, jewelry, food and much, much more. We also have our famous bake table set up with lots of goodies. Band members from Charlottetown Rural will be performing at various times throughout the event and the Stratford Elementary Glee Club will be performing at 2:00 on Saturday. We hope to see you there!
*Please keep an eye on the storm watch pages in case the impending weather causes a cancellation on Friday.
