Experience Canada’a Greatest Carrot Festival!
For the 7th consecutive year Carrot Fest has been awarded as a Top 100 Festival from Festival & Events Ontario. Carrot Fest will return this year on Friday, August 18 and Saturday, August 19, in downtown Bradford. The expansion of the Friday night event is new for 2017 and will highlight local businesses.
What started as a small downtown market with an aim to revitalize the downtown has grown to be Bradford West Gwillimbury’s largest and most successful event, greatly impacting community pride. The black organic soils of the Holland Marsh make Bradford West Gwillimbury one of Canada’s biggest carrot-producing regions. Carrot Fest is a celebration of the region’s agricultural heritage and a way to recognize what makes Bradford West Gwillimbury unique.
Carrot Fest brings the community together to celebrate, encourage participation and generate pride. This fun-filled event has something for everyone including families, children, youth, adults and seniors. The festival is also host to a large variety of vendors. In fact there’s space for over 300 retailers, both local and non-local. Entertainment is not in short supply, with a main stage fully programmed throughout the day and evening with family-friendly performances and top-of-the-line bands, two buskers pitches, and a multitude of strolling entertainers there is something for everyone.
