Shift Your Shopping – Christmas In Cumberland Village
In recent years, a global shift has encouraged us to eat close to home as well as spend our money close to home. This sentiment rings especially true at a time of year when many people are snapping up gifts left and right to give to loved ones.
The snowy village of Cumberland is continuing its support of this movement with it’s annual Christmas in the Village event. Locals in the Comox Valley are being challenged to keep their dollars in their own back yard this year by patronizing the incredible shops that have helped shape the community. Merchants will be selling everything from handmade crafts and wine to sweet treats and those hard-to-find stocking stuffers.
This initiative is kicked off on December 3rd with the Cumberland WinterFair, followed by a sackful of events leading up to Christmas Eve. Not only does this provide a fantastic way to keep local dollars in the community, but it’s also a fun way to get your Christmas shopping done while enjoying the beauty of the Comox Valley’s mountainside village!
