The in-person Carrot Fest returns with vendors, music and a kids’ zone


The August 19-20 event in Bradford West Gwillimbury has been named one of the top 100 festivals and events in Ontario for over a decade

After two years of virtual and modified versions, Carrot Fest returns to the streets of Bradford city center on August 19 and 20.

Carrot Fest started over 20 years ago and has been named one of the top 100 festivals and events in Ontario for over a decade. The event celebrates the importance of Holland Marsh soils, emphasizing the importance of carrots to our local economy.

Visit and enjoy a great vendors’ market, music and entertainment, including our children’s and youth zone, and grab a free bag of locally grown carrots, courtesy of the Holland Marsh Growers’ Association.

“We are thrilled to have Carrot Fest returning to normal capacity,” said Bethany Kuboniwa, leisure events and marketing manager. “We can’t wait to see BWG supporting local vendors and enjoying free music and entertainment while celebrating the city’s roots.”
