Community Event Submission Guidelines

We welcome the public to submit community events to our listings. Town Staff will review each listing prior to it appearing on the website. There is no cost to the listings but there are guidelines.

  • The event must be located in Collingwood or one of its neighbouring townships. Events that have multiple locations are  eligible if the majority of the locations are in or near Collingwood.
  • The event must be open to the general public.
  • Events shall not promote hatred or derision of any group and shall not discriminate on any grounds covered by the Ontario Human Rights Code.
  • Events that charge a nominal admission price to recoup costs or raise funds for a good cause are appropriate.
  • All events must include a way for the public to obtain more information about the event (phone number or email address)
  • 'One time' events are welcome ie. one day or weekend events

Examples of appropriate Events:

  • Public fundraisers, festivals, meetings

Inclusion of any event is at the sole discretion of Town Staff. Submissions will be edited for length and clarity.
