The 39th annual Canal Days Marine Heritage Festival offers activities and attractions that will enliven the senses.
The Tall Ships gather in Port Colborne each August holiday weekend, for a four-day celebration of history and heritage, a must see for Marine enthusiasts! Join us along the canal for concerts, fireworks, Ontario's largest outdoor Classic Car and International Kite show. The Seaway Park children's area has games, entertainment and kid's activities.
Festival food and shopping kiosks fill Historic West Street or take a shuttle over to the Vale Centre for the indoor Craft Show. Take in the Ships, explore the decks, try your hand at the wheel or feel the spray as you cruise the Empire Sandy Tall Ship on Lake Erie or the E.M. Cotter Fire Boat along the Canal wall.
No pets please. Guests may bring chairs into Market Square. Admission is FREE however $2 to $5 donations are appreciated and accepted at the gate.
