Canadian Heritage Festival

Event Details

Join us in Vankleek Hill for the Canadian Heritage Festival in conjunction with the 150+ birthday of our nation with parades, competitions, crafts and antiques booths, art shows, traditional local music and dance and lots of fun for participants of all ages.  Craft booths and antique stalls will line the streets, in addition to art shows at the Arbor Gallery, Three Owls Studio and The Review,. Interactive demonstrations of traditional crafts invite visitors to try out their skills, sewing, weaving, calligraphy, etc. Scheduled events include a Children’s Parade (come one, come all!) and an antique tractor parade. (Already we have 50 antique tractors coming to town for the day!) Prizes and honours will go to the most decorative and creative hats and the tastiest butter tarts. Local musicians and dancers will sing, dance and play music featuring traditional styles and instruments.
