Local Colour

Consider yourself right at home in BruceGreySimcoe and at our smaller community events.  Smaller venues mean experiencing small town hospitality at its best and a chance to rub elbows with the locals.  Farmers’ markets, small theatre productions, family events, harvest dinners, fall fairs, art exhibits and much, much more are happening here every fall.  Before leaving home, visit the promotions page for some awesome offers from our operators on packages, discounts and admission fees.
