A Message From Our Chair

Since its inception the Friendship Festival has been a venerable institution spanning two countries, and provided Fort Erie with more than 3 decades of entertainment and experiences; it has been an amazing 37 years but all good things come to an end at some point.  The board has taken a look at the financial framework needed going forward and the changing landscape of fairs and festivals across the Province, and made the tough decision to announce that 2019 was the last year.”

“The residents, businesses, and organizations of Fort Ere are to be congratulated for their continued support and attendance; and to our volunteers throughout the years, we could not have done it without you – a festival of this size can only be achieved through the hard work of many, and we’ve been fortunate to have some amazing people on our team for such a long period of time.”
