Fall in love with BruceGreySimcoe…

 

Hike a trail, cycle a back road, take a waterfalls tour or bundle up and take a beach stroll along a wavy shore. Tis the season of fall fairs and festivals and the biggest agricultural fair of all — the International Plowing Match, September 16th to 20th in Ivy. Farmers’ markets and farm stores in BruceGreySimcoe are bursting with the season’s bounty — celebrate the harvest in a BIG way at Port Elgin Pumpkinfest, October 4th and 5th, or be part of the harvesting crew at a local winery. Start a new family tradition at Sainte–Marie among the Hurons’ annual Thanksgiving Harvest Festival.

This is apple country – drive, cycle or hike the delicious Apple Pie Trail and celebrate
the apple season at the Apple Harvest Festival. Many orchards have their own stores so they can sell pretty much fresh from the tree to you, and at some, you can even pick your own. Tour quiet rural roads by car or motorcycle and tickle your taste buds by travelling the scrumptious Huronia Food Trail.

Avid fishermen can drop a line in Lake Simcoe, Georgian Bay, Lake Huron or one of our many inland lakes and rivers. Fall is migration time for the salmon and from mid–September to mid–October the Owen Sound Salmon Tour shadows the salmon on their annual trip up the Sydenham River.

Music lovers can take in live concerts at Casino Rama or local music festivals such as the Orillia Jazz Festival, a three–day festival from Oct 17th to 19th. Elegant and rarely seen automobiles are the star attraction at the Cobble Beach Concours d’Elegance, September 13th and 14th.

Looking for a fall escape? BruceGreySimcoe’s resorts offer fall getaway packages for families, couples and spa weekends. Fern Resort is known for its traditional family resort experience while Blue Mountain specializes in on-site activities, attractions and shopping. Rent a cottage, chalet, stay at a B&B or motel or enjoy the amenities at one of our many hotels.

Studio tours and art galleries, fall driving tours, golf, dining, shopping, museums, attractions and a warm welcome is waiting for you this fall, in BruceGreySimcoe!
