First Light 2022 – Sainte-Marie Among the Hurons
Sainte-Marie’s “First Light” is a must-see holiday event. Rediscover the historic site aglow from tranquil candlelight, as a beautiful amber glow illuminates the famous 17th-century mission.

Experience the beauty of the season wrapped in history, with take home crafts, treats in the cookhouse and a selection of local vendors, showcasing a variety of products for sale.
