Description & Services

Avon River Days is celebrated the weekend prior to the first Monday in August. It is a time for family fun and reunions, for remembering the past and celebrating our roots, and for making new memories to look back on. The Avon River Days committee is dedicated to making Avon River Days a bigger, better, and much loved celebration for Windsor and West Hants citizens and for the visitors to our area. We hope you've enjoyed the previous festivals, and we look forward to seeing you during Avon River Days 2018, which is being planned now and is almost here!
