Welcome to Pickering Village

Pickering Village

Pickering Village is Ajax’s historic main street, situated at the crossroads of Old Kingston Road and Church Street. Once an original Quaker Settlement from the 1800’s, the area celebrates a mix of the old and the new, including local businesses, restaurants and pubs that have situated in historical buildings with unique architecture. The district is also home to the St. Francis Centre for Community Arts and Culture, a municipally-run theatre that provides arts and cultural events and experiences for residents and visitors.

Now, more than ever, Pickering Village’s local culinary businesses have become the heart of our community.
