WE Made It: Holiday Market
The WE Made It: Holiday Market returns, sponsored by Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island in partnership with the Urban Art Market, Rose City Etsy Team and WindsorEats. New this year, the market will be complemented by a convenient seating area where you can enjoy a sip or a bite and relax in the glow of the lively shops nearby. The full holiday market will be open Fridays and Saturdays, with a partial market for food and beverages operating during the week. Along with the market, several excellent local food and beverage options will be available.
Yes, dogs are allowed, and regular park rules apply (e.g. dog must be on a leash; please clean up messes, etc.), but we recommend a little extra caution, as the heavy traffic, lively displays and noise can be stressful for some dogs, and dogs can be intimidating for some passersby as well.
