Farmers' markets across Grey are opening for the 2019 season. With the exception of Owen Sound (which is open year-round) most markets will open in time for the Victoria Day weekend or shortly after, just in time for the first local harvests.
Join us in celebrating the journey of our ancestors within the Underground Railroad’s most northerly safe haven. Bring your family and friends for a weekend of music, art, storyboards, crafts, children’s’ games, speakers, literature & other activities.
Individuals interested in … history, family, culture and community have been congregating every August 1st weekend since 1862 in Owen Sound, “the most northerly retreat of the Underground Railroad journey in Canada”. Descendants of blacks, who came via the Underground Railroad to settle in freedom, gather to reminisce and enjoy a time of fellowship.
