Ontario Helping St. Catharines’ Festivals and Events Grow

Ontario Government Strengthens Local Tourism and Job Creation

The new Ontario government is giving St. Catharines’ festivals and events a boost to help drive tourism, create jobs and generate economic activity in the region.

Through Celebrate Ontario the government is providing support to 203 festivals and events in 2013, including:

-       The Niagara Wine Festival ($22,100)

-       The International Cool Climate Chardonnay Celebration ($70,750)

-       STRUTT Wearable Art Weekend ($23,000)

-       In the Soil Arts Festival ($36,000)

These investments will help organizers enhance programming and services, attract new audiences and create local jobs.

By showcasing our diversity, heritage and culture, Ontario’s local festivals and events make our province a more attractive place to visit. They also offer affordable and accessible options for families looking to explore their province.

Helping festivals and events grow is part of the new Ontario government’s efforts to build a strong economy and vibrant communities.
