For the second straight year, organizers have cancelled the annual Ennismore Shamrock Festival.
On Monday, the festival committee announced that following consultation with Selwyn Township staff, they have decided to cancel the 2021 Ennismore Shamrock Festival due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The festival takes place in the village just north of Peterborough.
The annual festival, which began in 1967 at a Centennial year celebration, features a weekend of family fun in and around the Robert E. Young Recreation Centre, including sports events, children’s games and activities, a petting zoo, face-painting and more, and culminates with the popular truck and tractor pull.
This year’s event was scheduled for July 17 and 18.
“The festival plans to welcome visitors back in 2022,” a release from the township states. “This is truly a community event and we thank everyone who has supported the festival over the years.”
