July 13 – Heritage Festival 2024

Heritage Festival 2024 planning is underway and we have extended the event to run from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. this year! So what’s new this year so far? We will be offering a free in-town shuttle service within Burk’s Falls (from specific locations) for pick ups and drop offs to and from the fairgrounds. Many new attractions are also being planned. We are investigating a tractor display so if you have an old tractor that you would like to bring out to the event, please contact Jim Percy at 705-879-5642.

We will host a vendors market again, which is quickly booking up the fairgrounds. As of the end of January, we have over 60 vendors registered. We have more food vendors also confirming their attendance!

The Southeast Almaguin Firefighters Challenge planning is underway by our Fire Chiefs and the Regional Training Officer. We can’t wait to see our brave firefighters converge on the field to showcase their skills and stamina! This year’s firefighter coin will recognize the Burk’s Falls & District Fire Department’s Fire Chief, Dave McNay, for his retirement and years of service. Kearney Fire won the challenge last year…who is going to win the 2024 challenge?

Our second Car Show is open for registrations. Jim Percy will be co-ordinating the Car Show again this year and we are very grateful to receive his dedication. Jim has an amazing energy towards all sorts of vehicles and we welcome everyone to participate. The four big trophies are up for grabs this year again: Crowd Favourite (ballot voting on event day), Heritage Festival (chosen by the Historical Society’s members), Mayors Choice (chosen by the Mayors of Armour, Burk’s Falls & Ryerson) and Fire Chiefs Choice (chosen by our five Fire Chiefs from Burk’s Falls, Kearney, Magnetawan, McMurrich/Monteith & Perry). We will also have numerous awards with prizes to be chosen from local business donations.
