Chair’s Message

Get ready for Unionville Festival 2015!
 
Wow, it’s almost that time again! Work is well under way on the 46th edition of this annual favourite.
 
As the new chair, I am thrilled to be a part of such an experienced and dedicated volunteer organization. More than 20 committees are hard at work to put on the best festival ever. They’re setting the stage for the annual parade, music on the street, shopping, food, arts, children’s events and so much more, all with no admission charge!
 
Please note: The Festival is unable to present the Saturday fireworks display this year due to funding challenges.  We will work to bring the fireworks back in 2016.
 
Also, this year’s Brews & Tunes is moving to Main St. to support the merchants of Unionville, with live music presented along the street and refreshments available on the patios of our great pubs and restaurants. Please enjoy responsibly.
 
The Unionville Festival was founded in 1970 to protect this unique heritage village from imminent destruction. The village is now an official Heritage Conservation District for everyone to enjoy – permanently. It’s also a wonderful place to stroll, shop, dine, listen to music and meet with friends.
 
This year has brought a poignant reminder of the festival’s real purpose. On March 18, the 1871 Queen’s Hotel on Main Street suffered a devastating fire. Thankfully, no one was hurt, no other buildings were damaged, and restoration work is already underway. Yet, the impact is still significant. The best way for all of us to ensure the continuing health of the village is to come to Main Street and enjoy it together – before and during the 2015 Unionville Festival.
 
So, invite your neighbours, family and guests to join us in celebrating our shared legacy.
I look forward to seeing you in Unionville June 5, 6 and 7!

2015 Chair
 
P.S.  Of course, the festival couldn’t happen without the dedication of many, many volunteers and sponsors. We can still use your help this year.
 
To become a volunteer, please contact us at volunteers@unionvillefestival.com.
 
And the festival is not, in fact, free. We depend on the generosity of our sponsors. With attendance often topping 70,000, the Unionville Festival is a unique opportunity to be seen by, and contribute to, an amazing community.
