Smiths Falls OHW 2025 mission, goals and objectives

Our mission is to bring people back home for an epic 8-day festival that honours our community’s rich history.

We support local businesses and community service clubs while further engaging our residents and promoting the quality of life we all enjoy. Join us in celebrating diversity and inclusion, while equally important, educate ourselves and visitors about our indigenous history and other cultures.

The event will feature revenue-generating opportunities as well as non revenue-generating  activities for all, young and old, altogether ensuring a memorable experience for everyone. Let’s come together and make history in Smiths Falls, Ontario, Canada!
