Top 5 Things To Do in Wellington County

Cider with the Cows

Sunday, October 2, 1:30 - 3:00pm Erin

Join Val for an informative stroll out to Heartwood's rolling pastures. Enjoy a pour of your favourite glass of cider to sip among the cows and their new baby calves. In this up-close-and-personal 90 minute experience, learn about climate-friendly regenerative grazing, and how cows can help to heal the planet. Pet the cows, and say hello to our sheep flock and their llama and pig friends. This is geared to adults, but engaged youth are welcome too (non-alcoholic cider available too)!

Elora Fergus Studio Tour

Saturday, October 1, 10:00am - 5:00pm Centre Wellington

Ever wonder what an artist's studio really looks like? Here’s your chance to get a look behind the scenes. Take a self-guided tour and meet artists where they live and work. Many artists and craftspeople will open their studios for two consecutive fall weekends. The Studio Tour is completely free of charge. You’ll get a chance to meet directly with the artists, and often see work not shown in gallery settings. You’ll visit the working spaces of both established and emerging artists, from basements to self contained studios.

Saturday, October 1, 12:00 - 4:30pm Minto
The event will feature a variety of classes of off road vehicles taking on the course at the Harriston Arena. Gates will open at 11am with racing starting at noon.
