We all know that Windsor and Essex County is a festival destination, and now some of our local festivals have won bragging rights.

Festivals and Events Ontario recently announced its 2016 Top 100 Festivals & Events in Ontario, and three local festivals made the list.

Submissions were received for consideration in the fall of 2015 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 2016 Top 100 Awards were given out on Friday, March 4th during FEO’s Annual Conference Dare 2B Different in Markham.

The local winners are Carrousel of Nations, the Tecumseh Corn Festival and the Amherstburg River Lights Winter Festival.
