Billy Bishop Heritage Fest, including our Veterans’ Commemoration Ceremony, BBQ and Exhibit Opening on Saturday, July 27this just one of the great events happening this summer at The Billy!

Join us for a Victorian Tea on August 7th or 21st. Tickets available at the Museum. Don’t forget to call and reserve your spot at one of our Ghost Walks every Sunday night in July and August.

On Saturday, July 27th, our Veterans’ Commemoration ceremony will begin at 11 am in the backyard garden. Emily Jolliffe, Curator, says “This event offers everyone the opportunity to honour all Veterans, and to speak with representatives from the many heritage organizations and groups that contribute to the rich cultural atmosphere of Owen Sound and area.”

At noon we will fire up the BBQ! Lunches are complimentary for all Veterans, $5 per person for all others. There will be hamburgers, hotdogs, chips, beverage, cake, and delicious ice cream generously donated by Chapman’s Ice Cream.

We want to thank the various heritage and community organizations that have joined us this year. You can find information on great area events from our Tourism groups. There is also a large private display of medals and cap badges. And what would Billy Bishop Heritage Fest be without re-enactors!?

There will be games and crafts for families and kids of all ages. Create your own bracelet, learn origami, play croquet, badminton, bocce ball, ring toss and board games, or have your face painted! These are just a few of the activities led by our talented Summer Staff.
