Celebrate the season with us!

Saturday October 27th, 2018 from 10am – 3pm!

Our much anticipated 8th Annual Autumn Fair returns on Saturday October 27, 2018. This popular community event brings in people of all ages together to meet their neighbours, have fun and celebrate the season!

The Autumn Fair fills an entire block with street vendors, food trucks, carnival games, a pumpkin patch, and local musicians. You can step inside Kits House to check out a haunted house, a pancake breakfast, and our Kits Kafe! The event will also feature a variety of entertainment, including family yoga with the Yoga Buggy, Magic show with the Maestro of Magic, an interactive theatre, and improv with The Fictionals Comedy Co! And we’ll cap off the event with a costume contest – best baby, best kid and best adult!
