Winter is such an underrated time to visit Prince Edward County. The crowds of the summer and fall have started to fade away as the grass begins to
frost. Don't let the chill weather deter you, there are many exciting things happening in the County this winter!
Here are some of our top picks of events and activities happening Winter 2017!

The County has some wonderful community theatre events. One of our personal favourite locations to view some great local theatre is in Milford's Mount Tabor PlayHouse. This renovated Church is a county destination in the winter months, just 2 minutes from Jackson's Falls. This year the they are performing 'It's a Wonderful 'New' life'.
