Top 5 Things to do in Wellington County this Week!

School is out and Summer is here! Check out our top 5 Things to do in #WellingtonCounty this week to help you celebrate: 

  • Rockwood Christmas in July
    The businesses in the town of Rockwood are excited to announce their first annual Christmas in July. Events kick off with a Christmas Eve Themed Farmers Market on July 24 at Rockmosa Community Center in Rockwood. The following days will feature sidewalk sales, Christimas decorations, decorating and colouring contests including prizes, live music, a published local author illustrator book signing, and Santa Claus meet and greets.
  • Fergus Wine Fest
    There is no party like Pizza Pasta Wine! Join us for Fergus Wine Fest! Time to raid your closet for the perfect pink and white outfit and join us in the whimsical forest surrounded by trees and lights for Pizza Pasta Wine. Use your souvenir drinking cup to sample 20+ different wines (red, white, and rose), peach bellinis, sangria, cider, beer, coolers, and more! Food trucks will be cooking up stone oven pizza, pasta, and other street food favourites! Rest your feet as the day will be full of dancing and singing along to live music.
  • A Nation's Table: Food Day Canada Documentary Premiere
    A brand new documentary short film, A Nation's Table, explores the life's work of Anita Stewart, the "patron saint of Canadian food". Thanks to her boundless tenacity and enthusiasm, she contributed more than ever imaginable to uncovering untold stories that celebrate Canadian cuisine, ultimately leading to the nationally recognized "Food Day In Canada". Through her life of activism on food and the people who bring it to us, she turned crisis into opportunity, setting the table for Canada to build its culinary traditions into an evolving food system that's the envy of the world.
  • Join our actors/historians as they lead you on a lantern walk and guided tour of the mysteries and histories of one of Canada's most haunted villages. You'll learn about the gristly end of the town clockmaster, the bagpiper's lament, the famous doctor with a dark secret, the legend of the Ancient Ones and many more captivating stories from the early days of Fergus.
  • Summer Concert Series at Wellington County Museum and Archives
    Wellington County’s Summer Concert Series is back for its eleventh season at the Wellington County Museum and Archives (WCMA) Thursday evenings throughout July and August! July 25th will be featuring 12th Line Band.
