Arts and crafts are flourishing in this area. The September tour of artisans’ studios and homes has become a successful and much enjoyed event. The long standing Blue Skies music festival continues to grow each year in popularity and attendance. There are small galleries to visit and special art exhibits throughout the year. The local Little Theatre provides productions for those of you who enjoy a little drama or comedy.

August brings the Parham Fair, one of the oldest continuous fairs in Ontario, where families have an opportunity to experience a true country Fair. The Fair has something for everyone….livestock activities, antique machinery and entertainment.

February brings Heritage Days Festival with events such as a Snow Rodeo, maple syrup as well as other food and culture related activities and showcases.

If driving is your passion, north of Highway #7 lie some of the best back roads in the province for driving where rocky outcroppings emerge on every curve. Ideal for cycling, motorcycling or that scenic country drive, Highways 509 and 506 extend access to a region that is almost undeveloped. Approximately 3/4 of this area Crown Land, accessible to the public for recreational enjoyment. Take a picnic and enjoy the ride!
