Friends of Awenda Corn Roast – August 10th
Come and get it! We’ve all been waiting and it’s finally here, sweet Ontario corn is ready and we’re cooking it up and serving it to you. Come on out as we celebrate the Friends of Awenda’s contributions to the park through a Corn Roast. Park Naturalists will be on site with their coolest stuff! Don’t miss it! Feel free to come early and help us shuck!
“Spirit Night” Beach Campfire – August 17th

Packed full of interactive opportunities and stories, this is one evening you don’t want to miss out on!

Awenda Inspired – TBA
Join the Friends of Awenda for the Annual “Awenda Inspired” – a day of creativity inspired by the fall beauty of Awenda Provincial Park! This is an opportunity to meet with local artists as they attempt to capture the spirit of Awenda on canvas and paper in an informal day of artistic exploration.
