When: Nov 3 4-8pm
Where: Orangeville Agricultural Society Event Centre
The annual Guy Fawkes/ Bonfire is a huge traditional festival that happens all over the UK on or around the 5th of November and on the East Coast of Canada. This is a night on which traditionally friends and neighbours will get together in their community around a huge Bonfire, traditional British food and a big fireworks display at the end of the night. Many Brits, including myself, grew up with this being a big part of their family tradition. Now you can celebrate this event right here in Ontario. We have strived to keep the night as traditional as possible for all our nostalgia loving brits however we have added many great family items to the festivities:
Kids crafts including; making your own ‘Guy’, Candies in a haystack and a Find the Gunpowder treasure hunt.
Local Craft Beer and Cider Vendors
Live local band covering British artists
Traditional food including Bangers and Beans, Baked Potatoes, Soup and apple turnovers.
A chip truck offering a Brit-Canadian twist - Roast Beef Poutine
A British tuck shop for all those penny sweets you loved.
A huge Bonfire
A finale of professional fireworks
We have strived to use local businesses for this fun, family night and we are excited to meet all the people that travel from all over southern ontario to attend our 3rd annual festival.
Don’t miss out on this great British Tradition!!
