Canal Fest features live music daily, Big Band Ottawa, Irish Roots, Kemptville 3 and we’ll be show casing local talent again this year. We have Dr Four Face, The Bug Lady, Clowns and face painting as well as an open mic event hosted by Patrick Attwell. There will be a three day craft show and sale as well as Voyageur Canoe ride and tour to the Bird Sanctuary. This annual three dayevent is provided free by the Lions of Merrickville with the support of the Village of Merrickville/Wolford and the Merrickville Chamber of Commerce.
To add more excitement to the day the Merrickville Lions is challenging any group willing to accept to beat them in a Voyageur Canoe tug-o-war in the canal basin!
