Agincourt Collegiate Christmas Concert

Another seasonal event in our neighbourhood - that always draws a very large crowd - is the Christmas concert performed by the award-winning orchestras, bands and choirs of Agincourt Collegiate Institute.

This year’s concert will take place in the ACI auditorium – starting at 6:00 p.m., on Sunday December 11.

The students and staff of ACI would be pleased to welcome you to this annual concert that will help everyone get into the spirit of the holiday season.


When you are next in Sheppard East Village, we think you will like the winter floral displays that were recently installed throughout our BIA.

These attractive greens are on display in 64 hanging baskets and in 30 planters – from Midland Avenue to Markham Road.

We hope you enjoy these floral displays throughout the holiday season and until the spring of 2017.

The Board of Management and members of Sheppard East Village BIA are pleased to arrange and finance these floral displays - that always help beautify the community we all share.


You will also notice our attractive new banners, featuring 9 more BIA members whose photos and profiles have also been added to this Sheppard East Village website and are included in 45,000 new 2017 brochures that have been widely distributed in nearby residential communities.  

We thank the 9 other BIA members whose photos and profiles were featured in our 2016 promotional materials – whose stories are still available on this website.
