Welcome to Meaford


Welcome to the Town of Meaford! Known as “The Other Big Apple”. One thing the town is known for is its exceptional theatre scene. The Meaford Hall is home to some of the best concerts, plays and performances in the area. The gallery in the hall also showcases local artists, many of whose art pays homage to the great town they live in. The Meaford International Film Festival (MIFF) takes place annually over four days during the September Labour Day weekend.  

MeafordDuring the summer months, the Harbour is booming with activity, with boaters and anglers enjoying the warm weather. This waterside town is also home to amazing playgrounds and campgrounds, with Memorial Park being a local favourite. The summer is also a great time to check out the Georgian Trail, a former railway line that has been converted into a walking and cycling trail. It starts in town and heads all the way into Collingwood, following the shore of Georgian Bay with views of the water and local nature along the trail.

The town has all the amenities you may need such as grocery stores, banks, post offices, and a hospital. There are plenty of small businesses such as restaurants, cafes and shops located on the main street. A couple of our favourites include The Leeky Canoe and The Kitchen.

The town’s dedication to its history while still creating new traditions is what makes it so special. Stopping by the Meaford Museum, Meaford Hall or any of the local historical plaques allows you to learn about the rich history of the area.

The Meaford Harbour 5 km Run/Walk, the Apple Harvest Craft Show and the Scarecrow Invasion are just a few of the annual events that you and your family will enjoy discovering.

With such a variety of activities and points of interest, from boating on the harbour to catching a show at the historic Meaford Hall, there is so much to do in this humble town. Add in the amazing beauty that surrounds you in nature and it is clear to see why the area draws people in from near and far to visit and live!  And it’s only a 2.5-hour drive from the GTA and 2 hours from Kitchener/Waterloo.
