About the Festival

Since 2003, the festival has taken place during the last week of May. However, due to Covid19, our festival since 2020 have and will continue to take place in July. This year we will be celebrating from July 15 to July 23, 2022. Festivities tie together the diversity, history and natural environment of the community.

Announcement

"Dear Renfrew-Collingwood Community, we firstly would like to recognize that there has been a confusion over the week events that have been published on the Renfrew- Collingwood Community Newspaper. Note that the most updated schedule is on our website and that two events published in the newspaper had to be cancelled due to technical issues. These were the Indigenous Futurism and Virtual Reality that was supposed to happen on Tuesday July 19 at 11am and the Italian Cultural Centre Farmers Market and Wine that should have taken place this evening on Thursday July 21 at 6pm. Please note that we have done our best in creating the programming with all the fast-moving and changing pieces and with the given tight-frames our new Community Connections and Celebrations Coordinator had to put this together from scratch. We would like to publicly extend an apology to all who have been confused and showed up and were disappointed by this.

We also would like to apologize to the families and children that presented themselves to the Collingwood Park last Friday July 15th for Movie Night in the Park to see the screening of Sonic. We are very sorry that you have been disappointed that the movie was not shown and that there was no effective communication on site nor online of it's cancellation. The Community Policing Centre was organizing this event and had printed in their flyers that it was weather dependent, but we failed to make that information readily available on our end. Since the field was wet they did not want to take the risk for folks to get wet and we all failed to have a reliable way of communication to inform everyone about this. We are working on finding efficient ways to prevent this to ever happen again.

Please consider joining us next Friday for the Monkey Beach screening (recommended for 12+ years old because of disturbing language) with the amazing Director of Cree/Métis and European ancestries, Loretta Todd's presentation and  Q&A, weather dependent again, though so far it looks like the weather is on our side! Be assured if this were to happen again, we would put signs in the park.

We thank you for your support and understanding and hope that you will join us for the remaining of our programming and on our Grand Festival day this Saturday July 23rd starting at 10am!"
