The Backroads Artisan Tour is a free self guided tour located in the Northeast corner of Norfolk County, Ontario. The tour is a twice yearly event, occuring the first weekend in June (Spring/Summer Tour) and the third weekend in November (Country Christmas).
Country Christmas began in 2012 as a small collective of Christmas open houses of local artisans – all located off the beaten track on the backroads of Norfolk county. Since then it has grown to several backroad locations and attracting hundreds of visitors from across Ontario over the course of the weekend.
The tour is designed not only to showcase local handmade products but also to provide a unique experience for those on the tour: a day of driving down beautiful scenic backroads, visiting some truly unique places and spending the afternoon tasting wine, experiencing art and purchasing quality handmade products.
Head out for a day on the backroads and slow down to a more human pace, get in tune with nature, and experience some unique places, people and their creations.
