Collingwood has embraced the outdoor dining experience in a new way this year! Introducing Collingwood Patiolicious - a fresh new way of experiencing the taste of Collingwood's culinary experts and the creative approach they have taken to their expanded patios. Located on back lots, hidden gardens, main street parking spaces, and other undiscovered areas, these new patios also reflect the artistic creativity that abounds around South Georgian Bay. 

Patios came from Europe to North America in the 1960's as an innovative way of experiencing eating outdoors. Sixty years later, Collingwood has made a concerted effort to help its many local restaurants, cafes, and markets expand their outdoor footprints as a way of helping them through the COVID-19 crisis. In the entrepreneurial spirit Collingwood has become recognized for, its locally owned eating establishments have taken this opportunity to create refreshing new spaces that celebrate the connection the region has become famous for as Ontario’s Four Season Playground. 

Collingwood Patiolicious now gives everyone a chance to discover these new, creatively decorated patios, both in its historic downtown, as well as around Town and along its many hiking and biking trails. 

Come experience Collingwood Patiolicious from August 17 to September 30 this year for some great sweet and savoury celebrations, as well as the extensive selection of locally brewed beers and distilled beverages at more than 20+ participating locations.

Collingwood Patiolicious is presented by the Town of Collingwood and the Collingwood Downtown BIA.
