Brooklin Harvest Festival

The Town of Whitby’s annual Brooklin Harvest Festival celebrated its 24th anniversary in 2023 and annually takes place on the second Saturday after Labour Day. In 2023, the event attracted over 10,000 people to Grass Park and historic Downtown Brooklin to enjoy outdoor activities, local shopping, the rich fall colours and bountiful local produce. The event featured more than 120 Farmer’s Market and community vendors, live music and roaming entertainment, horse and wagon and trolley rides, a
scarecrow scavenger hunt, interactive demonstrations and homemade goods. The event also includes a kids zone with giant inflatables, rock wall, face-painting and children’s crafts, games and activities.

Great fall festive photo op and selfie locations were located throughout the event site. The dinosaur exhibit highlighted one of the favorite selfie locations of a life sized dinosaur head that you climbed right into. For 2023, aimed at safety of the visitors and residents, the event grew in size again and closed another section of Baldwin Street creating additional walking and activation space. This addition created the opportunity for many new businesses to get involved and enhanced the atmosphere.
