Festival of Banners

An Invitation
The Minden Hills Festival of Banners invites you to participate in the revival of an exciting project in our village. Students and adults in Haliburton County are being encouraged to create designs for banners that will be hand painted and hung from light standards and hydro poles throughout the village of Minden. The banners have been a vibrant addition to the community’s colourful summer and fall months.
Theme: This year’s theme, in the spirit of the national celebration of 2017, is Canada 150.

This initiative is made possible by the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, a collaboration between the Township of Minden Hills, the Government of Canada and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast.
