Welcome to the 28th Ridgeway Summer Festival. Many thanks to Fortis Canadian Niagara Power for their gracious and generous support. This event focuses on family fun and provides entertainment for the whole family! The festival features buskers, two entertainment stages, a Kids Zone plus fabulous food provided by downtown restaurants and street vendors to give you a taste of what Ridgeway has to offer! There are pony rides, magicians, clowns, peddler’s alley, direct sales and commercial vendors, more than 50 artisan, artist and craft vendors, a birds of prey nature display and each morning a pancake breakfast is served on site.

Have you ever tried a Segway? This year, Niagara Segway Tours will be in attendance and you can try one out for $5!

Did you know that Safari Niagara has a Zoo-university travelling exhibit? Our Stevensville neighbours will be on site with their display and information on what’s going on this summer at Safari Niagara’s “Zooniversity Outreach Program”. This outreach program is designed to provide an informative, educational, close-up animal encounter for all ages. Dynamic, interactive presentations featuring mammals, reptiles and birds will WOW festival goers!
