We have expanded our wedding service...

Sample wedding scroll 1

Our wedding package now includes a new option for discerning couples who would like to create a living history to be passed down to the generation yet to come.

If you choose to include a wedding scroll in your ceremony, we are now able to offer you a prestigious original piece of artwork from one of Canada's noted heraldic artists and calligraphists. Your scroll will be a reflection of the joyous ceremony in which your wedding vows were exchanged.

16th Annual Muskoka Escapades of Town Crying Competition

Town Crier competition

Once a year, the Muskoka Escapades of Town Crying Competition is held for modern-day town criers to be given the opportunity to compete for the highest honour in the business. This event is the longest annual Town Crier competition held in the world!

In July 2017, the contest was held in Bracebridge, Ontario, where 15 criers from Ontario and the USA  gathered to compare their skills. The town crier gathering coincided with Bracebridge's annual Santafest celebration. 

The Town Crier Poses

To capture the Town Crier of Markham in portrait was a challenge undertaken by the fine artists of The Society of York Region Artists.  The challenge was for me to sit still and be quiet for a very long time!

Read about the experience as recorded in livinginaurora.com.  Many thanks to the artists and to Anna Lozyk Romeo / community FOCUS LivingInAurora.com who wrote about the event.

Corporate Events

Markham Town Crier

Time is money when it comes to staging an occasion, whether it is an Annual Sales Meeting, Christmas Party, or other Special Event. Corporate Events generally involve large numbers of people, and events held at hotels or conference centres in particular, require that your organization is in-and-out in the time booked.


Markham Fair

Parades are a favorite community occasion.  After all, it all began for me at the Markham Fair.

People love a parade.  It really brings young and old together!
