10 SEPTEMBER 2022 / TINY, ONTARIO
Georgian Bay Festival is a family focused event nestled in a beautiful rural setting in the Heart of Georgian Bay. Our aim is to provide an opportunity for people of all ages to experience and enjoy good fun, food, music while experiencing the outdoor recreational lifestyle that Tiny Township offers. We will be showcasing and celebrating our local agriculture, artists, craftsmen and entrepreneurs.
Like the petals surrounding a sunflower corona, “silos” containing different elements of our festival circle the central food hub. Our silos will include a Marketplace where vendors will offer an opportunity to explore the many creations produced in Simcoe County, as well as two event stages that will offer exceptional talent and entertainment. For motorcycle enthusiasts, we have invited Georgian Bay “Thunder Run” to join us.
Visitors will be able to enjoy a safe event that includes family and accessible washroom facilities, ATM services and plenty of Sunflowers. In a supervised environment, children and adults will be able to interact with the Township of Tiny’s first BeeLine.
The sunflower symbolizes harvest bounty, friendship, loyalty, long life, good fortune and vitality. It is at the Georgian Bay Festival where new friendships can begin and old ones re-unite in 2022.
The Stubbs-Orok family has been enjoying the beautiful area of Woodland Beach since the 1940’s. Original family settlers came to the Midhurst region in the 1840’s from Scotland.
Growing up in the area, Don wanted to ensure that family traditions could be enjoyed today by family, the many friends made over the years and always, new friends.
Don and his wife Janice are the owners of the Georgian Bay Park. This beautiful location on the Nipissing Ridge is on land that was originally farmed by the Beacock and Tripp families. Their residence is on the former site of the boy’s camp – Camp Onondaga.
We at Georgian Bay Festival would like to respectfully acknowledge that we are situated on the traditional land of the Anishinaabeg people. The Anishinaabeg include the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Pottawatomi nations, collectively known has the Three Fires Confederacy.
Together, we honour Indigenous history, and culture and commit to moving forward in the spirit of reconciliation and respect with all First Nation, Metis, and Inuit people.
The first step to reconciliation is recognizing the existence of Indigenous Peoples. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada speak to the significance of education as the key to reconciliation. A shared understanding of how our collective past brought us to where we are today will help us walk together into a brighter future.
