Come for the MUSIC. Stay for the FUN ! Win big at the Lions 50/50 draw and spend it all on amazing finds at the Silent Auction in Maplewood Hall.

The Oxford Mills Community Association, with the generous support of volunteers and community-minded sponsors, will be hosting another year of Canada Day celebrations under the majestic maples in Maplewood Park.

Local musicians Grenville Grass, Fiddlehead Soup, Jones Street, the Standby Brothers, and K Towne Trio will fill the NGBB stage from the time the flag goes up (at noon) til the last note is sung (at 4pm). The Canada Knights will also perform displays of sword-wielding prowess for your entertainment. Thanks to the St.Lawrence Swordfighters Guild for polishing their armour and steel, and showcasing their skill and endurance. Kids can don knight garb of their own as they Capture the Flag.

The Kid’s Zone returns with traditional games; stilts, ball fun, face-painting, Playmobile castle assembly and more. Send your children over to the fish pond to check out the catch of the day, then stay around for free cake after the 2nd Act.

Dial A Chef will have crêpes and a Lions Club BBQ beckons. There will be Tug of War matches throughout the day, vendors to browse, and Canada’s 149th birthday to bring in style!
