Canada Day Long Weekend in the Kawarthas


The Kawarthas has always been a place filled with history, pride, celebration, and joy. This is even more true on the Canada Day Long Weekend for Canada’s birthday! There are many great festivities and events happening around the Kawarthas that promise to be fun for the whole family.


Fifth Annual Fairy and Dragon Festival

The fifth annual Fairy and Dragon Festival was held this past Saturday. This free event took place at Isabel Morris Park and saw a great turn out.

Families full of fairies and dragons came from far and wide to partake in the festivities.

There was something there for everyone to enjoy with many local businesses and Kawartha Chamber members as vendors, as well as lots of the fun activities for the kids.


President’s Notes – June 2019

Mike2It’s hard to believe I am writing my notes for our June Newsletter already! Time has flown by since our AGM in February, and now the busy summer tourism season (and the sunshine that comes with it) is here!

The Board of Directors will break after our June meeting for the summer but this does not mean our work is done. Our committees will be hard at work and are always looking for help. If you have an interest in Marketing, Membership & Programs, Finance, Human Resources, Physical Resources or any other area of expertise, make sure to connect with myself or any of our board members to see how you can help out.

At our May Board Meeting last month, we hosted the Mayor of Selwyn Township, Andy Mitchell, as a delegation. It was an excellent opportunity to learn about the work being done on the municipal level, ask questions and voice concerns on behalf of the local business community. The Chamber wants to be proactive in our role as a conduit for information for local business. By communicating with leaders and decision makers, we can enhance your membership by advocating for your best interests.
