Quinte West Tree of Warmth
In the spirit of giving this festive season, Quinte West Holiday Market visitors may donate winter accessories such as toques, mittens, gloves, scarves, and socks to the Tree of Warmth. In partnership with Community Partners for Success, donations will be given to individuals and families in our community this winter.
The Tree of Warmth lighting ceremony will take place on Friday, Dec. 1 at 7:15 p.m. with deputy Mayor, David McCue. 
Santa’s Secret Shop
As part of the market festivities, children may visit Santa’s Secret Shop. Designed for ‘kids only’, they can purchase a pre-wrapped gift, at a kid-friendly price for a family member. This gives them the opportunity to experience the excitement of gift-giving on Christmas morning…if they can wait that long. All proceeds will go to Rotary Club of Trenton and Community Living Quinte West.
