Enchanting Christmas Orchard Walk and Fun Family Dinners

November 21, 2013 - 5:00pm - January 5, 2014 - 8:00pm

Enchanting Christmas Orchard Walk                                                       

Thursday through Sunday evenings during the Holiday season


This Holiday season, merridale starts a new tradition. Best of all….IT’S FREE.

Imagine twinkling lights on the trees, perhaps a dusting of snow on the orchard floor, and a cup of mulled cider to warm the soul. Our Christmas Orchard Walk will surely enchant the whole family, but also provide romantic overtures for couples looking for a romantic stroll. Busy like Santa’s elves, we are currently creating holiday displays.

Our walk will start at Santa’s workshop (formerly known as the oxidation hut), and finish at the Elf’s Work Shop, otherwise known as the faery mining village. Along the lit path, you will encounter other familiar favourites such as Frosty and Rudolph. Bring your mitts and boots to keep warm, and begin the journey at the ciderhouse. Here, we will provide you with a map and some goodies to take on your walk. When you return, gather your family and friends in the bistro for a delicious and affordable meal.  For those wanting our regular menu, or a more intimate evening, we offer dinning on the heated patio overlooking the orchard. Don't forget to call ahead and reserve a table!

And be sure to pop into the farmhouse store, stocked with many ideas to help in your gift-giving this season, from culinary treats, unique art, and of course….our very own ciders and spirits that you know and love.

Stay tuned for more deatails on this and other events happening here in the lead-up to our light-up!
