The 2017 Waterfront Festival returned for another year. There was lots of midway rides, entertainment, food, and vendors over the 3-day event that all ages enjoyed. Hosted by the Rotary and Lions Club of Cobourg the money raised will go towards local and international projects.
The Cobourg Waterfront Festival began 50 years ago during Canada’s Centennial year. It started as a small art and craft show on beautiful Victoria Beach on Canada Day in 1967. Fast forward to the 1990’s when the Cobourg Rotary Club and the Cobourg Lions Club became involved along with a volunteer committee from the Town. Since that time, the Cobourg Waterfront Festival has become one of the largest summer festivals in Ontario, attracting tens of thousands of people to the community over the Canada Day long weekend.
