Welcome to Newmarket, ON!

Located 50 km (31 mi) north of Toronto, Newmarket was founded in 1801 as a Quaker settlement. A visit to the Ontario town promises an exciting mix of historical adventures and outdoor fun. The Historic Downtown District is home to many noted landmarks, including the Old Town Hall built in 1883 and Market Square, a recently developed meeting place utilised for local events. Take a stroll down Main Street, where heritage sites are marked with descriptive plaques, and see local landmarks such as the Cawthra House, the location of the town's first bank, and the Roadhouse and Rose, where Newmarket's first business was situated. Learn about the early settlers and pioneer life while viewing artifacts on display at the Elman W. Campbell Museum. Get some exercise by hiking the Nokiidaa Trail System, which links Newmarket with the nearby towns of Aurora and East Gwillimbury, or visit Fairy Lake in the Wesley Brookes Memorial Conservation Area. Located downtown, the spot is popular among outdoor enthusiasts, and the Fairy Lake Artisan Festival takes place here each June.
