Stewart Park Festival is proud to be one of Ontario’s Top 100 Festivals, according to Festivals and Events Ontario. It is a real credit to the hard work our volunteers put in to the Festival each year.
Stewart Park Festival named one of the top 100 Festivals and Events in Ontario for 2015!!!
This is a prestigious award, announced by FEO, and presented by VIA Rail Canada. These Top 100 recipients represent festivals and events that excel within the industry. Included in the Top 100 are the Festivals & Events of Distinction, a select group which represent some of the most well-known and respected celebrations in the province; celebrations which draw both an international and domestic audience.
“Our government recognizes festivals and events as important economic drivers and we’re proud to support their efforts to create jobs, grow our economy and celebrate our diverse and vibrant cultural identity,” said the Honourable Michael Coteau, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport. “I am pleased to join with Festival and Events Ontario in celebrating this year’s Top 100 recipients and I congratulate them all for achieving this honour.”
Submissions from FEO members were received for consideration in the fall of 2014 and were judged by an independent panel of judges. Festivals and events of all kinds from every corner of Ontario were represented in the submissions – from community festivals to internationally recognized events. The 2015 Top 100 Awards were given out on Friday, March 6 during FEO’s Annual Conference Let the Inspiration Flow in Niagara Falls, ON.
