A new summer festival is set to fill the void left by the cancellation of the Shores of Erie Wine Festival.

Windsor-Essex Harvest Festival is a new, regional festival celebrating the region’s rich agricultural heritage and local food and drink producers. Organizers say it will promote a “growing industry of locally grown food, craft beer, fruit and grape wines, distilleries and thoughtfully resourced restaurants.”

“Our region is blessed with a rich culture of place, source, people and product. Why not recognize the producers who work hard every day to bring local fare to the table?” says Amherstburg mayor and event chairperson Aldo DiCarlo.

The festival will take place on the grounds of Fort Malden National Historic Site of Canada on September 9th, 10th, and 11th, 2016.
