Courtyard Light-Up

We invite you to walk around our lighted courtyard. You will find Merridale truly magical! Start at the tasting bar with a cup of Yule Fuel, our seasonal mulled cider, to keep you warm on your stroll. The walk will lead you around the courtyard of lights where you can explore Santa’s workshop, Rudolf’s stable, the Elves’ village, and a variety of other holiday scenes.

Cocktail Hour

After your stroll, enjoy appetizers in our farmhouse lounge. Drinks are available for purchase from the bar. Our farmhouse features a cathedral ceiling and a grand fieldstone fireplace, creating the perfect atmosphere for mingling.

Live Performance

For the first time this year, Merridale is offering a special live performance that will fill you with the Christmas spirit. Entitled "Standing on Your Head", this original one act play is filled with seasonal songs and interactive moments.

When your Christmas Eve plans suddenly shift, what choice do you have but to sing the carols that made you. In "Standing on Your Head" you might find that a change of perspective can give you a change of heart. Starring Charlotte Denton, Shannon Tyrrell and written and directed by Jenessa Galbraith, come experience the renewal that singing your old favorite Christmas carols can bring.

You will join others under the twinkling lights of our covered outdoor deck for the performance. With a warm blanket on your lap and a cider in your hand, sit back, relax and savour the season.


After the performance, savour a holiday feast in our gastropub. Situated in the middle of the orchard and surrounded by twinkling lights, the gastropub is an ideal setting for a long table dinner of farm fresh foods. You will join other groups at a table in the true spirit of Christmas.
