Welcome to the beautiful grounds of Ball’s Falls Conservation Area, home of one of Ontario’s largest Thanksgiving Festivals. With over 150 juried artisans, food vendors, demonstrators & entertainers participating in this four-day long annual tradition, there is always plenty to do, see, and explore at our flagship conservation area. For the 3rd year in a row we will also be hosting a Farmer's Market where you can pick up local produce and VQA wines.
The first Thanksgiving Festival was held at Ball’s Falls Conservation Area in 1975. The intention was simple: to raise money for conservation and environmental programs that were not otherwise funded. This remains the purpose of the Festival today. From its humble beginnings as a one-day craft show, the event has become a family tradition.
From our family to yours, welcome home. We’re delighted to be your hosts
