The autumn months are busy but they’re also beautiful…if you’re lucky enough to spend them in Grey County!
Many will visit the area to take in the scenery, enjoy the laid back atmosphere and sample the treasures our creative, hard working community provides (farm fresh produce, small batch cider or hand-crafted goods, anyone?). If you’re one of the lucky one and don’t have to cram your Grey County activities into one weekend, there are a number of fantastic events coming up that feature some much appreciated “local colour”!
Book a seat on The Beer Bus for one of four exclusive Corkscrew City tours of the most popular watering holes of Owen Sound – the birth place of Canada’s prohibition movement. Tours include dinner, tastings, brewery tours, theatre and transportation. There’s only one date in September left so book your seat today!
