Township Events

As the Province has moved into Stage 3 of Phase 2 of Ontario’s Action Plan, the Township of Minden Hills is cautiously entering the initial stages of planning and supporting events within the municipality. The safety, and health and well-being of our community is essential. All events will be considered and evaluated on a case by case basis, following the guidelines of current COVID-19 protocols and safety measures of the province, local Health Unit and Township.

In the event of a cancellation due to changing circumstances or updates to COVID-19 guidelines from the province, local Health Unit or Township, you will be contacted and issued a full refund. Thank you for your understanding.
