Visitors can rent bonfire pits for up to six people that are available on a first come first serve basis. While sitting around a warm fire, they can sip seasonal beers and munch on gourmet delights from a special menu prepared by Bench Brewing’s kitchen.

The mini market showcases local guest vendors that change out every week. When the event was launched, Gnomes by Mari was spotlighted on the market’s debut weekend. Her timeless Scandinavian gnomes of all shapes, sizes, and colours were set for sale in a pop-up booth. Future vendors will continue to be promoted .
