This event starts the last weekend in January-1st week of February. Great outdoor and indoor activities for the whole family. It is the Largest Winter Event In Ontario. Sauble Beach is lit up with its night time parade, Christmas tree bonfire, crafts, food booths and the battle of the bands. The following weekend then kicks off with pancakes on the grill at 630 am. and 40 other different events throughout the day. You don’t want to miss Wiarton Willey’s prediction, the coming of spring. This event has been taking place since 1956. Make it a Great weekend or week and stay at Lake Francis Cottages located 20 min. from the festival.
