Wiarton Wille Festival 2016

Paul Deacon - Wiarton Chamber President Welcomes you to Williefest 2016!

The Wiarton Willie Festival is turning 60 in ’16!  For 60 years, every February 2nd , Willie followers have gathered for his great prognostication – early spring?...long winter?...we’ve seen it all.  Our community has celebrated our beloved groundhog with festivals, parades and pageants – and this year the Wiarton Chamber’s volunteer Festival Committee along with many other community volunteer organizations are pulling out all the stops for the 60th Diamond Anniversary Celebration.


Starting with Willie’s Diamond Dinner Gala on January 28th and our Festival Queen Pageant on January  29th, we have  5 days of  Williefest activities.  Whether you’re a partier, foodie, sports or outdoor enthusiast--- there’s lots for you to do.  We hope you will use the festival as an opportunity for a family and friends homecoming.


Wiarton Willie’s 60th Diamond Anniversary, January 28th to February 2nd.  Mark it in your calendars and go to wiartonwilliefestival.com for news and updates.

Wiarton Chamber President, Paul Deacon
