Downtown Orillia Holiday Season Kick-Off

Join us on a Facebook Live Stream as we light up the downtown for the holiday season! Head over to our Facebook page at 7pm on Friday, November 13th, 2020.

Featuring Orillia Silver Band.

In partnership with the City of Orillia.

Proudly sponsored by Orillia Power Generation.

Black Friday

Take advantage of outrageous specials throughout the Downtown!

Downtown Orillia is once again offering half off Downtown Dollars (while quantities last). The office will have a booking system in place so you are able to book a time slot to pick up your Downtown Dollars in a safe manner that allows for social distancing.

Stores are open late but we won’t tell if you book the day off work to SHOP!

The booking system will go live on this page the day before Black Friday (Thursday, November 26th) to allow you to book your time slot to pick up your Downtown Dollars on Black Friday.
