ABOUT THE FESTIVAL!
Whether you have known us as
The Friendship Festival, Art In The Park,
The Lynn River Music & Arts Festival or the Simcoe Rotary Friendship Festival, the one thing that these events have in common is the fact that Simcoe, ON has been home to a FREE, family-centred Festival on the Civic Holiday weekend since 1967!
In the Fall of 2019, a group of local Simcoe residents came together to bring a new, fresh take on the Festival, and one that really centres on Community. This group wanted to showcase all that makes Norfolk County special: its people, its places and its positivity. Sadly, the global pandemic halted plans for the 2020 Festival and made it so that our 2021 event was only a small, pop-up event. (It was still awesome!)
But plans are well underway for our 2022 Festival and we encourage you to become involved in some way!
Whether you want to become
a Vendor, a Volunteer, a Performer or a Sponsor,
or just want to attend as one of our many thousands of valued patrons, there is something for everyone at
The Simcoe Heritage Friendship Festival!
