Alliston Potato Festival

August 11, 2017 - August 13, 2017

Alliston Potato Festival

The Alliston Potato Festival is celebrating it’s 44th years – August 11 -13, 2017.   It started has a one day event but quickly turned into a weekend full of activities.  This is truly a community happening where families return to their roots, meet up with old friends and meet new friends while enjoying the event.   We have one of the largest parades in Ontario – a must to see for sure.  It happens on Victoria Street the Friday night as a kick off to the festival. The events and activities take place both on Victoria St and the Fairgrounds which is located on church st behind the firehall.
