An initiative of the Arthur & District Chamber of Commerce is to help keep you connected with your customers and your community. We strive to promote all local events and encourage our members to participate wherever possible. We seek to build Arthur into a community to happily work, play, and live in.

Below we have listed the major and most popular annual events; as well followed by all Arthur Events that occur over the course of this year.

         If you have an event you'd like listed on our website, just email us and we would be happy to include it.

Major Events

Lions Club Duck Race
Horticultural Plant Sale
  May 11, 2019

Held the second Saturday every May at McPherson's Park. Your favourite bathtub toy will be released into the Conestoga river and will be fighting with your neighbours' duck for space on the river. So come out and cheer on your duck and enjoy the food, a plant sale, family activities, and entertainment along the way. Cash prizes for the fastest duck: $1000 for first place, $250 for second, and $100 for third. Events start at 10:30am and Duck Launch is at 2:00pm.

Get in Touch for Hutch Walk/Run
      June 29, 2019 @ 8:30am - Arthur Ball Diamond

On February 10th, 2013, Steven Hutchison, son, friend, brother and teammate, took his own life. Out of this sad tragedy we have started on a journey to find a way to get our youth talking. There is an overall need to remove the stigma that is attached to Mental Illness as a whole, and to provide ways for youth to talk about and share their feelings or concerns in a manner that meets the needs of children and teens today. Help raise awarness by participating in the Annual #GetInTouchForHutch Race here in Arthur.

Opti-Mrs. Santa Claus Night Parade
