The longest freshwater beach in the World comes alive June 23-24

The Heroes Festival is a weekend designed to honour our military, first responder and public safety agencies. A family-friendly weekend where Canadians can interact with the men and women who keep us safe each and every day.

General Admission is FREE!

Festival opens at 9 am each day.  Air shows begin at 2 pm and finish at 5:30 pm.

Saturday Night Free Concert with Kiss Tribute Band, Destroyer begins at 7 pm.

Join us for our world-class airshow featuring the Snowbirds, CF-18 Demo Jet, and an array of civilian aerobatic performers.

Watch extreme watercraft performances,  offshore powerboat exhibitions, and Canada’s Military and Coast Guard perform search & rescue demonstrations.

Static and interactive displays will showcase the men, women, technology, and equipment from various branches of the Canadian Military as well as our Police, Fire, EMS and Public Safety agencies.

The festival is happy to have the  Wasaga Beach Cruisers who will display their classic cars.
