Fenelon Falls is celebrating Canadian history by hosting a Lord Simcoe Celebration during the August long weekend. Since live band music was a mainstay for entertainment in the late 1800s and early 1900s, the Peterborough Concert Band has been invited to perform as part of the day's events. Come to Fenelon Falls on Saturday, August 3rd to join in the celebrations - relax in the park at Lock 34 to enjoy the music, or listen while you stroll along Water Street and check out exhibits that show how our ancestors made butter, apple cider, yarn and paper. Other attractions on the day will include a museum exhibit about the abolition of slavery 250 years ago, an 1812 encampment exhibit and battle re-enactment, and Lord Simcoe himself giving a talk about his accomplishments while serving as Upper Canada's first Lieutenant Governor. There is no rain date for this event.
