What to expect?

Holiday Artifakes (a special pop-up exhibit)

Visit our special Holiday Artifakes exhibit for ONE NIGHT ONLY.  Feast your eyes on the first lump of coal that a naughty child received in Kingston.  It is said that the child tossed their coal bit into the fire of the first water works' boilers out of disappointment.  Try and decipher the scrawl from the Naughty or Nice list found on Ontario Street over 100 years ago - is there a name that you recognize from your family tree?  This pop-up exhibit will feature a number of never-before-seen holiday artifakes found right here in Kingston.

Choose your own Craft-venture 

Stop by our Craft Car to get creative with a variety of festive supplies. Create your own holiday decor or handmade gifts to take home!  Feeling stumped about what to create?  Feel free to consult our Craft Book for inspiration!

The Craft Car is also a great spot for you to upgrade or create custom ugly holiday sweaters (Bring Your Own Sweater).

Ugly Holiday Sweater Competition

Strut down our catwalk in your ugliest holiday sweater. BYOS (Bring Your Own Sweater)  We'll be kicking off the catwalk at 7pm.


This is the last night to see the PumpHouse's annual transformation into a winter wonderland for 2019!

Food and Drink?

Of course!  Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will be available at our cash bar.  Light snacks will be available as well.


Yes, we've got you covered!  Free parking is available in the lot next to the PumpHouse after 5:30pm.  If you are planning on having a drink, please plan ahead.  Kingston Public Transit stops are located close to the museum.
