2018 TOP 100 FESTIVALS & EVENTS IN ONTARIO ANNOUNCED
Provincial organization recognizes Ontario’s Best Festivals
Festivals and Events Ontario (FEO) has announced the 2018 Top 100 Festivals & Events in the province.
These Top 100 recipients represent festivals and events that excel within the industry. Included in the Top 100 are the Festivals & Events of Distinction, a select group which represent some of the most well-known and respected celebrations in the province; celebrations which draw both an international and domestic audience.
Submissions from FEO members were received for consideration in the fall of 2017 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 Collingwood Elvis Festival and Side Launch Days cracked the top 100.
The 2018 Top 100 Awards were given out on Friday, March 2nd during FEO’s Annual Conference “Create the Experience” in Hamilton, Ontario.
