Port Hope is host to a plethora of festivals and events year round. The new year starts off with the annual dining promotion, Delicious Dates. Spring brings maple syrup time followed by the crazy Float Your Fanny river race. Warmer weather brings garden tours, artisans & craft shows and a variety of unique local events. Canada Day celebrations include a parade, music and entertainment and fireworks. Enjoy fall at the historic Port Hope Fall Fair, annual salmon migration and the Historic House Tour. Christmas in Port Hope is a busy time of year with a festival of trees, lights in Memorial Park, a Candlelight Walk, and Santa Claus parade. Use the Calendar of Events to plan your next visit!

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the government's mandate to maintain physical distancing, the Municipality of Port Hope has decided to celebrate Canada Day virtually.
On July 1, the entire Port Hope community is invited to sing our National Anthem at 11:00 a.m. sharp, followed by a community-wide cheer from your front porch, lawn, bacony or driveway. This is our unifying moment - so plan to swing open those doors and share in the experience!
Take part in our photo submission challenges (psst, there are prizes to be won!):
Try out a guided yoga session, hosted by Spraoi Yoga, and experience virtual fireworks, as presented by Snapd, from the comfort of your own home!
For more details on all the ways to participate and celebrate visit www.porthope.ca/canada-day.
Happy Canada Day!
