  • The first ever Co-opalooza!

    Ontario’s co-operative sector is a constellation of 1,300 unique businesses bound together, and burning brightly, thanks our universal, co-operative principles. ​Principles that put community first. Principles that put people before profit. We think this is something to celebrate. 

    ​Join us Saturday, August 27th, as we invite you to come play, learn, eat, drink, dance, create, network, explore and experience true "community" at our first-ever Co-opalooza Picnic! Spend the day exploring our 98-acre site - discovering a hidden gem in your own backyard and connecting with other community-minded souls!

    Running rain or shine. Open to all, and all ages!
