PECelebrate Festival, a fun-filled community event from June 25 – July 1, will kick off the 2022 summer season.

The week-long festival will feature a variety of community celebrations including Indigenous Peoples Day, Canada Day, Multiculturalism Day and St. Jean Baptiste Day.

“We have been through some challenging times over the past two years, but the County spirit remains strong. I look forward to us coming together as a community to celebrate and mark the start of summer. A lot of great activities are planned, and I am sure the community festival will have something for everyone,” Mayor Steve Ferguson says.

PECelebrate Festival will open with Revel on Saturday, June 25 from noon to 9 pm at Macaulay Heritage Park. The event, produced by The County Museums, will celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day and Multiculturalism Day with music, food, art and community partnerships.

PECelebrate Festival will continue through the week with a variety of events across the County, culminating with Canada Day celebrations at the Picton Fairgrounds on July 1. The Canada Day event will feature activities for kids, a barbeque, and other activities.
