Annual Festivals and Events

In Brockville and the Surrounding Region

Brockville is the site of many annual waterfront festivals and events. With something happening year round, Brockville events help make this city a great place to visit for families and individuals.

If you enjoy food festivals, the Brockville Multicultural Festival, Downtown Brockville’s Street Eats event, and Brockville Ribfest are sure to satisfy your taste buds. If you’d prefer to check out high speed watercraft, the 1000 Islands Hydroplane Regatta and the 1000 Islands Poker Run are not to be missed. If you prefer events where you can explore, Doors Open, Art in the City, and the Refugee Island Breakfast take you to hidden gems in Brockville and beyond.

in 2017 Brockville will be celebrating along with the rest of the country for Canada’s 150th. As Brockville’s gift to Canada, in August of 2017 there will be a grand re-opening of Canada’s Oldest Railway Tunnel here at Brockville’s waterfront.

You can find an up to date list of Brockville events on our Events Calendar which will help you plan your stay in Brockville, including more detailed information along with dates and times.
