Orangeville All Events
Join us for Hospice Dufferin's Annual Hike for Hospice. The walk or hike is suitable for all ages and levels - from a gentle, flat 1km walk to either a 2km or 3km trail that is more difficult. If you would like to put together a team of hikers this year, simply designate a team captain, choose a team name and let us know who you are.
Obtain pledges in support of your hike. Hikers can also make a donation to Hospice Dufferin in lieu of obtaining pledges. All proceeds support essential operations of Hospice Dufferin.
We hope you can join us – what better way to spend a beautiful spring day in May!
Several blues and jazz musicians and bands will be performing at the festival. The main stage will be located in downtown Orangeville at Alexandra Park. Various clubs, cafes and restaurants will also be hosting live entertainment.
All over Canada, people are taking to the streets and parks to raise money for ALS! ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) is a progressively paralyzing condition with a prognosis of 2 to 5 years. By attacking the motor neurons in the body, ALS denies the ability to move, speak, smile and, finally, to breathe. It has no known cause, treatment, or cure.
This June, join ALS Ontario at the Island Lake Conservation Area and walk to raise funds for vital research, and to provide equipment and support for people living with ALS and their families.
Registration is open! Please click on the link above to visit the Walk for ALS website, or contact Lee Pettit at the email or phone number provided for more information. Help make moments matter!

Alpaca Ontario Spring Show
Take a stroll through the alpaca barns, view all the animals and have a chat with some breeders. Learn all there is to know about this wonderful livestock opportunity. Take in the vendor area for a look at just what can be made with the beautiful fleece from these
gentle animals. The photo contest is always a popular display, showing our favourite animals in their best, and sometimes most humorous, light.
There is a lot to see and learn in the Fibre Fantasy Area. Sit a while and watch the spinning and weaving demonstration and get a sense of what this re-popularized art form is all about. Peruse the fibre display and see what happens after the fleece is shorn in the spring time. Many breeders are quite crafty and enter their creations in our Fibre Arts Competition to be judged. You can take part by filling out a People’s Choice Ballot and
selecting your favourite pieces.
Short seminars will be offered throughout the weekend on fibre and alpacas in general.
Breakfast and Lunch will be available in the vendor area. And of course, we welcome you to sit back and enjoy the show.
Admission is free. Plenty of free parking available.
