- Port Elgin Pumpkinfest Recognized with THREE 2023 Festival and Events Awards!
March 10, 2023 | 0 comments
Port Elgin Pumpkinfest is proud to be the recipients of three Festival and Events Awards at the recent FEO Conference!
Niagara Falls, Ontario (March 8, 2023) Festivals and Events Ontario (FEO) is proud to announce the 2023 Top 100 Festivals & Events in Ontario. These Top 100 recipients represent festivals and events that excel within the industry.
Submissions from FEO members were received for consideration in the fall of 2022 and were judged by an independent panel of judges. Festivals and events of all kinds from every corner of Ontario were represented in the submissions – from community festivals to internationally recognized events.
We congratulate all recipients and are proud to be named among them!
Pumpkinfest was proud to partner with Port Elgin Home Hardware to present a 2022 Spring "Grow With Us" promotion to encourage gardeners of all ages and caliber to join in the fun of growing a garden - whether a GIANT or just a small vegetable garden. Not only did this innovative partnership promote environmental stewardship, but it also gave youth the chance to experience the joy of growing their own vegetables and being front and center on our main stage, We are extremely pleased with this recognition and will continue this programming in future years.
At the Awards Ceremony on March 8, our own very surprised coordinator, Joanne Robbins, was called to the stage to accept induction into the FEO Hall of Fame for 2023.
"I am honoured and humbled to accept this award and join the 47 Hall of Fame recipients." states Robbins. "I've been very blessed with creative Board members, a supportive community and a Municipality that goes above and beyond to help stage this festival."
Port Elgin Pumpkinfest has been a member of FEO since it's beginning and must give credit to this great organization for offering the learning and education support to the industry. They have certainy aided us in our ongoing success!
