Festivals & Events Ontario Names Sheep Dog Trials Tops!

March 13, 2013 -

Kingston's Sheep Dog Trials Festival has been named one of Ontario's Top 100 Festivals and Events for the sixth year in a row.

"To achieve this status on an annual basis speaks to the great and enduring love that residents and visitors have for this fantastic outdoor event, which offers a unique family experience and has something for everyone," says Lynda Breen, Supervisor, Recreation Programs.

The events on Festival & Events Ontario's annual top 100 list are chosen by a jury of peers from the event industry. Fort Henry's Sunset Ceremonies also made the list again.

DOGS VS. SHEEP STARTING AUGUST 9

Mark your calendar for the Sheep Dog Trials set for August 9, 10 and 11. Now in its 26th year, it is the third largest trial in North America. The Trials regularly attract several thousand spectators to enjoy the world calibre competition and many exciting side-attractions at Kingston's Grass Creek Park on a summer weekend.

This year's festival will feature some new and expanded side attractions, including Dock Dogs, exotic animal attractions by the Bowmanville Zoo, camel rides, a children's activity area and an expanded Crafts and Artisans Fair. Watch for further details closer to the date at www.CityofKingston.ca/events.

If you want to be part of the action this summer, the City is currently seeking sponsors. For more details visit www.CityofKingston.ca/business/advertising-opportunities
