The Wiarton Willie Groundhog Festival is one of the largest winter events in Ontario, with more than 40 planned activities, celebrating Canada’s weather-prognosticating groundhog.
Predicting the coming of spring is a very difficult and often controversial activity. Come February 2nd, there is only one way to be sure, and that is to wake up for Willie’s Prediction. Pancakes are ready by 6:30am and the rest is up to the laws of nature. The action starts more than a week earlier with the Sauble Beach “Winterfest” night-time parade, a Christmas tree bonfire, Battle of the Bands, and all kinds of other great indoor and outdoor events. A great way to get out and enjoy the season! Getaway weekend in Ontario. Stay at Lake Francis Cottages located 15 minutes from Wiarton!
