BALThis festival is being moved to an online format this year. It will run for the month prior to Thanksgiving weekend. All customers can order online from their favourite vendors and arrange to pick up all purchases during the regular show hours.
The first Thanksgiving Festival was held at Ball’s Falls Conservation Area in 1974. The intention was simple: to raise money for conservation and environmental programs that were not otherwise funded. This remains the purpose of the Festival today. From its humble beginnings as a one-day craft show, the event has become a family tradition.
