Come Chill on the Hill! Four days of family fun take place in Fonthill, Ontario over the 3rd weekend of July each year – Bring your family, your sunscreen, your lawn chairs and your dancing shoes!
What began in 2011 as a single day, to celebrate the completion of the Downtown Streetscaping in Fonthill and to promote a pedestrian friendly town centre as advocated by the Pelham Active Transportation Committee, has since grown to a four day festival event which includes music & entertainment for all ages, children’s activities, retail & food vendors, arts, crafts, wine garden, beer pavilion and Sunday morning breakfast in Peace Park
Residents and visitors, friends and neighbours are invited to come together in Fonthill to explore our lively and walkable downtown! Thursday is the Opener in Peace Park where you can shop for local produce and goods at the Farmers’ Market, dine at the Supper Market and enjoy fabulous music. Friday and Saturday, our popular Street Festival returns with entertainment on the main stage on Pelham Street, outdoor patios, vendors and more. Saturday is also the day for the exciting and interactive Kids Zone in Peace Park. There’s still lots to do Sunday in the Park, with a pancake breakfast, Kids Zone, vendors, blues music in the band shell and the best small town car show in the area.
We hope to see you out to Chill on the Hill this year!
