Alliston Potato Festival Banner 2020

We have just finished celebrating our 46th year of the Alliston Potato Festival. What an accomplishment to all the volunteers, organizations, non-profit groups and sponsors. It is through their contributions, dedication and hard work that the Festival is made possible.

The committee would like to thank you, the participant, for making this festival another success.

It is the people in our community that contributes to the success of this yearly event. Our years of tradition in having such a festival are indications that you look forward to this weekend and what it represents – community, fellowship, home coming and sometimes new beginnings.

We hope you enjoyed the Festival this year and look forward to seeing you for our 47th year of the Alliston Potato Festival.

We are very fortunate to have sponsors that provide either monetary contributions or in kind contributions both essential services when organizing any event. Therefore, we would like to list our sponsors below and acknowledge them for their participation in our festival.
