Place: 8 Nashville Rd, Vaughan ON, L0J 1C0
All Ages | $8 for adults | $6 for seniors and teenagers | $3 for children
An annual Kleinburg highlight in September is the Binder Twine Festival. It began in the late 1800′s when farmers came to the community to buy twine to bind their sheaves of wheat together.
An exciting day filled with unique crafts, great entertainment, Olde Tyme activities and great food awaits the entire family. For many, the highlight of the day is a unique Queen Contest where eligible “young ladies” (age 16 to eternity) call a hog, flip pancakes, hammer nails, and even milk a cow! The first official duty of the newly crowned Binder Twine Queen is to draw the winning ticket for the festival’s Quilt Raffle.
Gates open at 9 a.m. Admission prices are $8 for adults, $6 for seniors and teenagers, and $3 for children aged 2 to 12. However, if you come dressed in pioneer costume in keeping with the spirit of the festival, admission is free!
