Join Us for At Gnome in Bronte!

The birds in Bronte Heritage Waterfront Park have been singing a spring song for weeks. And with this budding season upon us, we invite you to join us for At Gnome in Bronte where we’ve got not one, but two free, family-friendly activities that are guaranteed to put a spring in your step and maybe even a gift card in your pocket!


Twenty gnomes have gone missing and we need your help finding them. Come to Bronte with your favourite people to shop, dine, explore – and search. Gnomes are hidden in store WINDOWS throughout the district.

Playing is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

  1. If you discover a gnome in a store window, write down the name of the business. Hint: The gnomes are about 1.5” tall.
  2. Find (at least) five and email with your list of participating businesses. You can enter up to four times with different business names.
  3. You’ll be automatically entered into a draw to win one of three $100 gift cards to a fabulous Bronte business. Winners will be contacted directly on Friday, April 14.

Do all your searching in one day or come back again and enjoy watching Bronte in bloom!
