The June show started as a Used Boat Show in 1989 in an effort to sell the huge number of preowned boats in dealer inventories in a public selling venue. Even privately owned boats were offer space in an effort to keep the product selection high and sales diversified. The time of year was geared to move inventory at the start of the boating season. As the years progressed so did the show’s focus. Accessories to the industry plus other recreational, sporting and lifestyle products evolved the show into a “jump start event” for the summer retailing season. Last year’s show had Discover Boating return with the format of taking potential boaters out on a selection of boats. Yamaha reported back that this show out did all other shows combined for response. They will again be in attendance with even more products. Attendance 6 to 10 thousand depending on weather.
Port of Orillia Waterfront Festival, August
This show started as the Centre of Power Boat Show in 1987. The name was based on data that showed Orillia was central to the highest concentration of power boating in the country. Several economic cycles have affected its original format. Working with the “Discover Boating” program, which was designed to attract “new” people into boating, gave rise to offering more activities to enjoy while at the event. Boat sales are still a centre piece out on the docks but today’s event it is a blend of the many recreational and lifestyle activities and their products found in the area. There’s also live music and entertainment, product demos land and water, great food, water ski shows, Dock Diving Dogs contest, SUP races, plus an zany annual cardboard boat race event that combined make the Orillia Waterfront Festival the impressive boating event it is today. Attendance 8 to 12 thousand depending on weather.

opportunity to buy dinner, shop your favourite market vendor, and be entertained with performances by The Suitors
and The Mike McCarthy Band. There will be balloon twisting and face painting by U-Pick Parties, children’s crafts with
Magic of Children in the Arts, and an extraordinary show put on by magician Sawyer Bullock.
‘Market by Night’ is a fun and entertaining way to spend time with family and friends on the long weekend of midsummer.
Throughout the Civic Holiday weekend from August 4th to 7th you will be able to enjoy live music, during the 'Keys to
Collingwood' Piano Festival! We have booked more than 90 hours of entertainment for the street pianos located in the

Western University, Humber College, and Wilfrid Laurier. We also welcome to Collingwood a special world renowned
