Holiday Shopping Passports available now!

Shop downtown with your Holiday Shopping Passport for your chance to win up to $3,000 in downtown money.

There are more than 140 places to collect stamps this holiday season in downtown. This year you can take your passport to the box office when you enjoy some of our great live entertainment at Showplace Performance Centre and Market Hall. We’ve also added a chance to win downtown money and escape with your friends, family and coworkers at Lift Lock Escape.

New for 2018 is a chance to win by signing out books at Peterborough Public Library. Drop by the book checkout during passport season and receive a free stamp for using library services. Once again we will also be giving away complimentary stamps when you drop by the Peterborough & the Kawarthas Tourism office at 270 George Street North (limit one stamp per person).

The passports feature three early bird prizes of $500 in downtown money to be drawn Dec. 5, 12 and 19 with the grand prize of $1,500 in downtown money to be drawn Jan. 9.

The Holiday Shopping Passports program rewards people for supporting local businesses by shopping, dining and enjoying downtown. Last year’s program saw shoppers stamp $1.9 million worth of Holiday Shopping Passports.

Here’s how it works: every time you spend $10 at a participating business, a box on your passport will be stamped. When your passport is filled (20 stamps), complete the form and drop it off at a ballot box at one of the participating businesses. Each completed passport is a ballot for a draw to win downtown money. There are more than 100 participating businesses downtown.

“It’s easy to understand why people love the Holiday Shopping Passports — spend your money locally in downtown Peterborough for a chance to win more money to spend at your favourite shops and restaurants,” says Terry Guiel, Executive Director of the Downtown Business Improvement Area. “This program just keeps getting bigger and better.”

Bring your Holiday Shopping Passport downtown on Nov. 23 for Black Friday as more than 100 downtown businesses put on some of the biggest sales of the year.

Our annual promotion of two hours free street parking starts Black Friday and runs to the end of December thanks to the City of Peterborough Parking Division.
