Written by Patti Foley

Saturday June 18, 2016 will mark the ninth year of Caledon Day! Caledon’s largest free event.

Classic CarStop by the Town Hall Campus in Caledon East anytime between 2:00 and 11:00 pm, or stay all day!

What started as a vision by a few staff and dedicated volunteers to connect our unique community of communities, has now grown to a major one day event hosting over 50k people throughout the past 8 years.

The inaugural event was implemented with a mandatory cost recovery budget and started in the fall. Caledon Day is now hosted the Saturday of the Father’s Day weekend in June. It is quoted to be the best vendor program in southern Ontario‎. There are over 50 vendors (product, service and food) slated for this year’s event.

It is a great showcase for Caledon businesses and services as well as an opportunity to buy local products. There is also a kids fun run, classic car show, silent auction and a beer garden.
