Cedar Hill Christmas Tree Farm and Fulton’s Pancake House & Sugar Bush are excited to present the 3rd Annual Ladies Night, an old-fashioned evening of Christmas hospitality and warmth. Oh, and some shopping opportunities too!

Join us on Thursday, November 21, 2019 from 6:30 to 8:30pm at Cedar Hill Christmas Tree Farm, 951 8th Concession South, Pakenham, Ontario.

We have a great evening planned for you. The first 50 ladies in the door will receive a Swag Bag of surprises from local businesses. There will be fun draws throughout the evening, including lift tickets to Mount Pakenham, spa treatments at Holtz Spa in Ottawa and Chateau Montebello in Quebec, gift baskets and other fabulous items. Everyone who attends will receive a ballot.

Tantalize your taste buds as you sample maple spiced popcorn, maple dip, brownies, maple squash soup, maple kissed cheese ball, maple mini cheesecakes and more. Bet you can’t resist! Café Claus will have desserts and beverages available for purchase.

Pamper yourself with a hand massage using Fulton’s Maple Luscious Body & Bath products.

Shop a wide array of indoor and outdoor Christmas decor including Christmas Trees, gorgeous wreaths which are handmade on site and a wide assortment of rustic gifts and tree ornaments. Lots of Fulton’s Organic Syrup, Gourmet and Maple Luscious Bath and Body products to choose from. Free gift wrapping included with all purchases.

Cash donations and a portion of the proceeds will be given to local teen Emily Bernier and her family. Emily has recently had her second kidney transplant and spent many weeks in CHEO.

Directions to Cedar Hill Christmas Tree Farm: From Almonte, head north on Hwy 29 towards Pakenham. Turn left onto Cedar Hill Side Road and watch for the Tree Farm sign on your right.
