Schomberg (2016 population 2,691) is a village in northwestern King, Ontario. Situated north of the Oak Ridges Moraine and south of the Holland River, the village is surrounded by natural attractions.

For some time in the early 20th century, the town was the terminus of the Schomberg and Aurora Railway that connected to the Toronto and York Radial Railway on Yonge Street, some distance to the east. The railway was constructed to bring shoppers and day-trippers from Toronto to the town, but was never very popular. Opened for traffic in 1902, it was electrified in 1916 and closed in 1927. The rails were removed the next year, but the right-of-way can still be seen to the east of town.



Schomberg has two elementary schools: Schomberg Public School and St. Patrick’s Catholic School. There is no secondary school in Schomberg, so students generally attend King City Secondary School or St. Maximilian Kolbe Catholic High School in Aurora.



An annual tradition is the Schomberg Fair, first held in 1851. It is an agricultural fair featuring a variety of events and activities. It is held every year on the last weekend in May and features a demolition derby, as well as a community parade.

A more recent annual tradition is Main Street Christmas. This is held the first Saturday in December where people celebrate the holiday season by listening to carols, going on hay rides, and viewing ice sculptures, among other activities. The Spectacular Farmers’ Parade of Lights caps off the day with dozens of farming machinery decorated with Christmas Lights slowly making their way along the street…with Santa on the biggest machine of all!



The Trisan Centre is the community recreation centre in Schomberg located at the intersection of Dillane Drive and Hwy 27. It has a fitness centre, and a 600-seat arena that is the home rink of the Schomberg Cougars, a Junior C hockey team playing in the Georgian Mid-Ontario Junior C Hockey League, and the Schomberg Minor Hockey Association of the Simcoe Region Minor Hockey League. The King Curling Club and the Schomberg Skating Club also use the arena.
