2016 celebrates the 38th annual Canal Days Marine Heritage Festival. Vessels gather in Port Colborne each Civic holiday weekend, for a four-day celebration of history and heritage along the canal. Explore the decks, try your hand at the wheel, or feel the spray as you cruise the Empire Sandy, Tall Ship or the E.M. Cotter Fire Boat on Lake Erie.

The Seaway Park children’s area has games, entertainment and kid’s activities all weekend long.
At the Port Colborne Marine Museum the history of the Canal is on display, and heritage artisans can be seen working their trade.
At the Roselawn Centre Saturday & Sunday offers two days of live entertainment.
Guests can ride the free Canal Days shuttle to the Vale Centre where the indoor Craft Show is held.
Festival food and shopping kiosks fill historic West Street, and the Market Square concert venue features top notch entertainment nightly.
