Take one look at the city plazas during the winter months with their towering christmas trees, resplendent light displays, and families huddled together sipping on hot cocoa and its no wonder its the favorite time of the year for many. Last year, Stouffville mayor Ian Lovatt met with the CEO of Gripblock last winter to rekindle that holiday spirit and deliver some christmas cheer in contrast to the isolation covid had brought to many the year before.
Last years winter marker was a huge success, this year Stouffville and Gripblock have decided to go big!
Using Gripblock’s ergonomic design, the Stouffville Winter Market will feature a maze of lego-like Gripblock mountains, walls, and even 5 Gripblock christmas trees to create the holiday atmosphere with our easy to build and durable product.
What is GRIPBlock?
GRIPblock is a strong, integral, and integral wooden block that come together just like legos to match any architectural design you can think of. Whether it’s pavilions, rinks, barriers, or patios, GRIPblocks can match any occasion and don’t require a specific foundation but can be built on any terrain. Tough and resilient, these blocks meet the perfect criteria for building in Canada’s harsh winter conditions.
How Will GRIPBlock Be Used at the Stouffville Winter Market?
Once the structures are complete, the Stouffville winter market will transport its visitors to a winter wonderland laid out exactly like a lego city featuring more than 40 structures consisting of over 10,000 individual blocks. The GRIPblock technology is so intuitive and simple to construct, that it will be assembled in under two days and can be deconstructed in a single day following the close of the Market.
In the center of this event will be the gathering tree where visitors can meet surrounded by neat GRIPblock christmas trees adorned with beautiful lights and ornaments. Directly adjacent will be a kids’ favorite santa photo section where families can pose with jolly ol saint nick to create lasting memories for your family. A section dedicated to music and performers with audience seating and a DJ booth next to the santa photos section.
The winter market wouldn’t be much of a market without a wide selection of vendors-and the Stouffville winter market will have no shortage of those to choose from. Featuring fan favorites like Fabulicious Funnel Cakes, Cheese Heads, and Philthy Philly’s there will be plenty of eat your fill.
Stouffville Winter Market: The Perfect Place to Gather Your Loved Ones This Holiday
Being a resident of the quaint Toronto suburb, GRIPblock CEO Montu Khokhar had met with Stouffville mayor Iain Lovatt to pitch his vision for a local festival where families can gather and celebrate the holidays with an easy to use and economic system such as GRIPblock. Speaking with regards to last years event, Khokhar said
“This market is built for the community, to be enjoyed by the community and we are thrilled to contribute to Stouffville with this new partnership.” He continued, “GRIPBlock is a Canadian-made product that is the future of building and it’s so easy that anyone can do it. These all-natural wood and aluminum blocks are the perfect option for our great outdoors. We’re honored to contribute to making this wonderful event possible.” While it was a success last winter, this year’s event is poised to be much bigger and feature many more attractions than last year’s grand opening.
Located in the heart of downtown Stouffville, the GRIPblock winter market will run from November 25th-November 27th.
