Kleinburg Binder Twine Festival


9 am–6 pm

The 51st annual Binder Twine Festival is a day of food, crafts, and fun at Kleignburg, Ontario.

It began in the late 1800s when farmers came to the community to buy twine to bind their sheaves of wheat together. Held the first Saturday after Labour Day, this exciting festival features juried craft exhibitors, great entertainment, “old-tyme” activities and great food for the entire family.

At the Queen Contest, eligible “young ladies” (age 16 to eternity) call a hog, flip pancakes, hammer nails, and even milk a cow! The first official duty of the newly crowned Binder Twine Queen is to draw the winning ticket for the festival’s Quilt Raffle.

Wheelchair accessible. Takes place rain or shine!
