Now in its 19th year, Sainte-Marie’s “First Light” is a must-see event with a great line-up of family activities and performers, all amidst the spectacular glow of over 5,000 candles.
The magic begins when visitors approach the candlelit historic site, as a beautiful amber glow illuminates the famous 17th-century mission. Visitors can stroll the candlelit paths which lead to a variety of fun family activities around the site, all the way to Martyr's Shrine.
“First Light” has strong ties to community groups, and many will be involved in this year’s celebration, offering special “hands-on” children’s crafts and historic demonstrations. An abundance of music will also fill the air, including Native drumming and singing, lively Franco-Ontarian folksongs, and delightful community and school choirs performing seasonal music on Thursday and Friday nights.
Don't miss the Fireworks on November 22, November 30 and December 8!
Parking is limited. A free shuttle bus will run on a loop from the Walmart parking lot to Sainte-Marie, between 5:30 pm and 9:30 pm, every evening.
For some early holiday shopping, 50 exceptional artisans and vendors will welcome you in MUSEUM and the new BRÉBEUF EVENT CENTRE. The themed Sainte-Marie gift shop will be open each night.
