Is this amazing event FREE?
It sure is! We would like to spread the love though, so we’d appreciate a donation of a non-perishable food item or cash for our South Frontenac Community Services food bank if you’re able. Check out their list of most needed items here: https://www.sfcsc.ca/food-bank-more-info
How about parking?
Yep, plenty of it and free. Lots of accessible parking too.
Are children invited?
You bet! We love sharing our passion about natural health and wellness with young, impressionable minds!
Are dogs welcome?
Yes! Dogs make everything better! We only ask that you keep them leashed and clean up after them because while dogs make everything better, dog fights and dog poop….not so much.
What happens if it rains?
We’re all intending to have blue skies and warm sun, but if Mother Nature has other plans, who are we to argue? Don’t worry, we’ll be covered under the big beautiful pavilions or canopies so we’ll still be there to greet you!
Do I have to pre-register to attend?
Nope, you don’t have to, but if you do you could win cool stuff and it would help us plan better, so we’d really appreciate it if you can!
Are there washrooms?
Yep! The park has brick and mortar washrooms with running water!
Will there be food?
Maybe, we’re working on having a food vendor with local, healthy fare, but check back here later. You’re welcome to pack a lunch and plan to stay for the day!
What kind of classes and workshops will there be?
