Tis the summer of "Plan Ahead, Book Ahead" for event tickets, accommodations and, where required, reservations at local restaurants. Make it easy on yourself, so you can fully enjoy all the fun this summer.

Smaller community events make up the backbone of life in BruceGreySimcoe. Check out the calendar for community events across the region, ranging from music to arts and culture, heritage celebrations, nature and fireworks.
