Centre Wellington, January 5, 2023 – The Enchanted Forest of Fergus donates $2500 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Centre Wellington from its first Winter show, Festive Forest.
The Enchanted Forest of Fergus is a local festival that provides a whimsical fantasy experience for families through music, magic, community, and art.
From the success of its first sold-out show in September, The Enchanted Forest of Fergus organized a holiday show which ran for four days in December 2022 to spread cheer and start traditions with music, magic, and art for the Centre Wellington community. The event was featured by Narcity Canada and generated over 1700 local attendees and those from around Southern Ontario.
The flagship September Symphony event took place September, 23 and 24, 2022. Guests enjoyed a 1-hour concert by The Toronto String Quartet and 1930’s ragtime duo, The Vaudevillian. The Forest came to life with strolling entertainment and featured local art, including Zimmerman’s first life-size display collection of woodland creatures and Sensational Elora’s giant illuminated mushrooms. A vendor market and silent auction were made possible by local businesses and guests could enjoy a cash bar by The Outpost.
Event organizers have announced a September 2023 festival is already in the works, though dates and the program have not yet been revealed. Follow @fergusenchantedforest on Instagram and Facebook for live updates, or visit the event website.
