Stratford Village – Christmas Street Party

Every year, the Stratford Road in Kensington aka the Stratford Village community, puts on a Christmas street party orchestrated by all the shops on the road. And of course, Fait Maison eagerly participates every year as we have done for the last ten years. In fact, the party started the year we opened our first ever shop right in the heart of the street! The street party is a chance for the local residents to be indulged in free food, drink and a whole host of festive fun.

And as usual, Fait Maison puts some delicious assortment of goodies on display, as well as making fresh waffles with maple syrup for everyone.

This year drew a particularly large amount of people, hoping to take the turkey home, but there was only one winner who went home extremely happy.

If you missed out this year, then keep us in mind for next year’s festivities and join the street for some early Christmas highlights!
