Fort Erie Friendship Festival Returns for Another Year of Celebrations
Border town hosts annual festival for guests near and far
The 32nd Friendship Festival returns to Fort Erie, Canada from July 12 – 15, 2018! This annual event celebrates the close bond between Canada and the United States, promoting good relations between the two.
The 2018 Fort Erie Friendship Festival will take place at Mather Arch Park, right beside the Canadian-American border. The park is also near just 15 minutes down Highway 3 from Sherkston Shores Beach Resort & Campground!
Friendship Festival is the perfect family day trip from the RV campground, featuring exciting shows and activities for everyone to take part in. With this in mind, some things to do include rides, a magic show, animal talent show, concerts, and much more.
