If there’s one single, fabulous, fun-filled reason for you to move to Ingersoll, it’s our amazing annual festivals! There’s always something going on that the whole family can enjoy and you don’t need an invitation, just come on down and join in the fun!
Most of the festivals happen each year, and there are always new activities and events being thought up and created! There are several new events at the Cheese & Agricultural Museum including the Magic Maple Syrup Festival, Heritage Week and Thomas Ingersoll Day!
“Harvest Festival” in August
Five days of celebrations right across town, including food evenings, entertainment, craft stalls, and a weekend of free activities for all the family.
“Pumpkin Fest” in October
Everyone’s favorite squash is the star of the show, with pumpkin decorating, pumpkin games and crafts, entertainment and more fun than you can shake a Cucurbita maxima at!
“Passport to the Arts” in October
Every household in Ingersoll is invited to the best local dance, literary, music, fine arts, theatre, craft and visual arts events, with a chance to purchase items made by local craftspeople and artists.
“Moonlight Madness and downtown Tree Lighting” in November
Experience Christmas and holiday shopping in downtown Ingersoll the way it was meant to be! Come see the Great Gazebo Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony as it is lit by the Mayor and listen to music and entertainment while you enjoy warm treats! You can take advantage of a full day and evening of delightful retail therapy as you stroll the charming, garland-decorated downtown area. Peer through holiday decorated windows, and browse and shop in our many unique, boutiques as most stay open late, some ‘til 11:00 pm, then take a break at a cozy café or restaurant, which will hopefully all help to get you into the holiday mood.
“Santa’s Festival Village” & “Festival of Lights” from November to January
Come and see the over 300 dazzling, award-winning light displays in Ingersoll’s five local parks and the downtown area which light the way to Christmas. Remember to drop by with the kids at “Santa’s Festival Village” at the Cheese & Agricultural Museum, for a little visit with Santa, have their face painted, enjoy warm treats, stories and even buy a Christmas tree
