Festival and Events Ontario (FEO) has announced the 2017 Top 100 Festivals and Events in Ontario.

The top 100 recipients represent those festivals and events that are recognized for celebrating heritage, bringing communities together and celebrating diversity.

Among the top 100 this year, is the local Huron Fringe Birding Festival held at MacGregor Point Provincial Park immediately south of Port Elgin on Lake Huron.

The Festival is held each spring and celebrates the world of birds and nature.  Held in Bruce County at MacGregor Park and surrounding areas, along the migratory bird route, it affords avid bird watchers the opportunity to see many species of birds as they travel from their winter homes.

The Festival is held over two weekends following the Canadian long weekend of May 24th.  Not only is it a time for bird watching, there are also activities that include guided hikes, butterfly and insect spotting, workshops on bird identification, nature photography, keynote speakers and night hikes.

Each year, the Festival has continued to grow and attracts international visitors and is 'sold out' each year.

This year's festival is being held on May 26th - 29th and June 1st - 4th.
