Cornwall couldn’t be more beautiful than at this time of year. Come to Cornwall, stroll along the beautiful St. Lawrence River and Lamoureux Park, take in the sunshine, and enjoy these great August events!
People don’t usually associate summer with spooky thrills, but when’s a better time for a chill to run up and down your back than when you’re too hot? At that point, it’s just refreshing!
On August 2 and 3, head to the Historic SDG Jail in Cornwall to experience a historical tour with a twist! This jail is nearly 200 year old, and that’s a lot of history to accumulate some ghostly presences! Go on a one-of-a-kind tour where you learn the history of this place while also conducting a paranormal investigation of your own!
The 10th Annual Cornwall Waterfest will be happening in our sunny city on Saturday August 10th! Watch dragon boat teams race down the historic Cornwall canal, fighting to prove they’re the best, all while enjoying an arts and crafts fair, live music, and fun activities for the whole family. There’s nothing quite like enjoying sun by the water, and this is a great chance to do exactly that.
Is there a more Canadian food than Poutine? Come to Cornwall August 8-11 to find out what great chefs and creative vendors can make of this beautiful mess. Dozens of food trucks will set up shop in Lamoureux Park, all vying to give you their very best version of this classic dish. With options for meat lovers, vegetarians and even vegans, this is a festival for everybody who doesn’t mind a few extra calories every now and then.
