Three Local Festivals In This Year’s Top 100 List

For the 15th year running, the Tecumseh Corn Festival is among the top 100 festivals in Ontario.

Festivals and Events Ontario recognized the best events of 2017 at its conference in Hamilton last Friday. The events across the province were judged by an independent panel of judges.

Two other festivals also made the list this year: LaSalle Craft Beer Festival, and Carrousel of Nations.

Carrousel of Nations was also on the list last year and in 2015.

Local festivals that have received the honour in past years include LaSalle Strawberry Festival, River Lights Winter Festival in Amherstburg, and Balloonapalooza in Windsor.
