It may get a little chilly in Cornwall this time of year, but thankfully, there’s plenty of fun to be had indoors, thanks to a packed schedule of concerts over the coming weeks. Our charming Ontario town will host a variety of musical acts, across a breadth of genres, and hosted by a range of awesome venues. Here’s a preview of what’s to come!

Spanish flamenco, Arabic folk, Cuban rhythms, and French manouche gypsy-jazz—you’ll experience a sound influenced by all this and more when you attend a Sultan of Strings concert. Intrigued? Well, you’re in luck. The Sultans take the stage at St. Lawrence College’s Aultsville Theatre on March 28, as part of the Cornwall Concert Series Association. Get your tickets while you still can!

CAPE—the perfect acronym for Cornwall’s first comic convention: the Cornwall & Area Pop Event, which comes to the Benson Centre on April 18th. Now, we know, at just over two months off the convention is still a little ways away, but we want to give everybody fair warning, because his is not an event to miss! Over the last few months, its schedule has grown like The Incredible Hulk, expanding with the additions of celebrity appearances, special events, contests, and more. And in the two months between today and CAPE’s official kick off, you can expect that it’ll get even better. With that said, here’s what you can expect from the event so far!
First, as with any pop expo, you can expect some cool guest appearances from CAPE. On the list so far are two beloved stars of AMC’s Kevin Smith led show Comic Book Men, Ming Chen and Mike Zapcic. The pair will be on location for meet and greets, autographs, and more. In addition, CAPE will welcome industry professionals like voice actors and animators, other stars like comedians and professional athletes, and of course, a whole lot of cosplayers! Deadpool sightings are all but guaranteed.
In addition to its spectacular roster of guests, CAPE will boast a plethora of exhibitors, specializing in collectibles, clothing, gaming, delicious food and more. Also on the schedule are some awesome musical performances from talented bands and artists, as well as an Elvis impersonator and “The Alison Wonderland Band,” an awesome Ontario tribute band.
Best of all, thanks to the Benson Centre serving as the event’s venue, all the CAPE fun will go down just moments from our conveniently located Cornwall hotel. That means you’ll have an easy time getting to the event, which runs from 10:00am to 6:00 pm on the day, and that you might just encounter some funky costumes under our roof.
Ticket info and updates on the events ever-expanding schedule can be found on CAPE’s website. Get your tickets before they’re gone (they’re expected to sell faster than the flash runs), and don’t forget to pick up your complimentary goodies at the event. T-shirts, lanyards and more are to be had!
And of course, when CAPE wraps up, head back to our hotel for excellent amenities (like free breakfast) and a great night’s sleep. We look forward to welcoming you to Cornwall for this exciting and groundbreaking event!
Enjoy all of the amenities that Ramada offers. Dinner in the BrookValley Grille, a relaxing swim in the indoor pool & hot tub, room service, and the list goes on... Call today for your dinner reservations and overnight accommodations.
It was another sold out night at the 12th Annual Seaway International Wine Festival held at the Ramada Hotel & Conference Centre on Saturday January 17th. Guests enjoyed an evening of gourmet foods, wines, spirits and live music. After partnering with our local radio stations (Boom 101.9 & Fresh FM), Scotiabank and Pommier Jewellers over $14,000 was raised for this year's charities, the United Way SD&G and Rachel's Kids.
On February 16, get ready to welcome a host of legendary former NHL’ers to beautiful Cornwall. They come to town for some fantastic hockey action as part of the NHL Alumni Benefit Tour.
The Benefit Tour is a stretch of 30-some games across Ontario, all with the purpose of supporting great local charities. This year, one of the tour’s stops is Cornwall. The event will be hosted by the Cornwall Civic Complex, which is a simple 4 minute drive from our comfortable hotel. Good news for our hockey loving guests!
So, once you’ve snagged yourself a ticket—which cost just $22 for adults and $16 for children and seniors—what can you expect when the fun begins? Let us give you a preview.
The evening is expected to include an awesome hockey game, played by NHL alumni and the Canadian Women’s Hockey League All-Stars. Also on the docket is a spectacular skills competition that’s sure to have you on the edge of your seat, and of course, some on-ice gags that are certain to leave you in stitches—the good kind, not the kind our favourite players are so familiar with!
So just which former players will grace the ice? Well, in addition to the Canadian Women’s Hockey League All-Stars, you can expect ice time from former Maple Leafs Curtis Joseph and Doug Gilmore, former Ottawa Senator Rob Ray, renowned Montreal Canadiens enforcer Chris Nilan, and former Gretzky bodyguard, Marty McSorley. There will also be appearances by Hockey Night in Canada’s Ron MacLean, and the father of Wayne Gretzky himself, Walter Gretzky. Not bad at all!
There’s no doubt about it, if you’re a hockey fan, February is a great time to be in beautiful Cornwall. That said, our own Cornwall Colts always have a busy schedule too!
All it takes to experience this awesome, on-ice action, and everything else Cornwall has to offer, is a room at our conveniently-located hotel. Book yours today!
