Ontario’s government for the people is working to create jobs and boost local tourism by investing in two festivals and events in Oakville.

The following festivals and events in Oakville are receiving support through the Celebrate Ontario program:

  1. Willson Oakville Film Festival, from June 20th, 2019 – June 23rd, 2019
  2. Songs of Summer, from June 14th, 2019 – August 30th, 2019

Celebrate Ontario supports festivals and events of all sizes to reach new audiences, improve the programs for visitors, benefit local economies and create new jobs. According to past recipients, every dollar invested through Celebrate Ontario results in almost $21 of visitor spending.

“Ontario is open for business and open for jobs. By investing in festivals and events, our government is tapping into the economic potential of the tourism industry,” said Minister Tibollo.“ As we develop Ontario’s new tourism strategy, we will continue to invest in programs like Celebrate Ontario that help to maximize the growth and competitiveness of the great festivals and events that take place throughout the province.”

This year, to help reduce red tape and the administrative burden for organizers, Ontario has streamlined the application process to make it easier to apply for funding.

Our government recognizes the important contributions that festivals and events make to Oakville’s economy. I am pleased that we are supporting Songs of Summer, and the Wilson Oakville Film Festival as they both continue to draw visitors from across the province and provide a positive economic impact to our community.

Celebrate Ontario supports festivals and events taking place throughout the year.
