Holiday Shopping Passport Season

If you’re looking for another reason to spend your cash locally this holiday season, this could be it. Holiday Shopping Passports return November 14 in downtown Peterborough

Shoppers will earn a passport stamp for every $10 you spent locally in downtown Peterborough. Each completed Holiday Shopping Passport increases the chance to win up to $1,500 in Boro gift cards.

New this year, winners will also receive a Musicfest Dinning Book filled with coupons at 56 local establishments that includes a savings of $600

The Holiday Shopping Passport program rewards people for shopping, dining, and enjoying downtown. Last year’s program saw shoppers stamp more than $2.6 million worth of Holiday Shopping Passports.

For every $100 spent locally, up to $48 stays in the community, compared to just $14 when shopping at big box stores.


Shoppers are welcome to collect free stamps at the Peterborough Public Library, Peterborough and the Kawarthas Visitors Centre and the Peterborough Square’s North Pole.

Shoppers are encouraged to shop early to increase their chances of winning in one of the three early bird prizes for a $500 Boro gift card. Early bird draw dates will take place on each wednesday of December leading up-to Christmas on December 7, 14, & 21.

The final grand prize draw will take place after the holiday season on January 11 where one lucky passport holder will win a $1,500 Boro card shopping spree.
