Have fun by the bay!

There’s so much to see and do while in Norfolk County.

Come visit Port Rowan, located minutes away from the beautiful beaches of Long Point, the world famous United Nations Biosphere environment, wineries and lakeside vistas.

Every year, Port Rowan hosts Bayfest, our annual Labour Day celebration which has been celebrated for more than 30 years. Originally known as Tomato Fest, the name changed to Bayfest in 2001.

Bayfest features three days of activities, many for kids, with a fantastic parade Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. and fireworks that night. Join us for a midway, rides, food, vendors and great entertainment found down by the waterfront and in town. Plus there are plenty of other fun events, such as build-a-boat races, hula-hoop contests, a plastic frog toss, soap-box derby in town and additional events held at nearby Long Point.

Come for the day or stay for a while. There’s a lot to see and do in the area!

Unfortunately, we have had to make the decision to cancel Bayfest for this year. Read More >>
