There are more than 30 special events in the Township of Champlain annually. These events such involve food and beverage, holiday festivities and community heritage are organized by our passionate community members, local businesses and the Township’s own recreation department.

On March 3rd of this year, the Committee of the Whole directed administration to seek community input on the draft Special Event Policy. The aim of the policy is to make it easier for special event operators to obtain municipal services for a safe and efficient event. Applications will be required for coordinate municipal services for special event operators. The Township of Champlain does not charge application fees for special events. Public consultation period has been extended to the end of 2020 as a result of COVID 19.

Calendar of Events

Please note, the Special Event Calendar below reflects the special events scheduled prior to March 2020. Several events have been cancelled as a result of COVID 19.
