What’s Going on in The County This Spring  

Ahhh, it’s finally approaching. After a long, cold, and very snowy winter, spring is nearly upon us. Can you feel it in the air? It’s the season of new beginnings, the time of year when simply stepping outside into the sunshine can put a smile on your face.   And – in our humble opinion – spring is one of the best times of the year to visit Prince Edward County. There’s a lot going on this season, and we don’t want you to miss a thing. So we’ve put together this handy springtime guide to help you experience everything The County has to offer. Enjoy!  

Go on a wine tour 

Our absolute favourite way to welcome in spring is by gathering up a group of friends and heading out on a wine tour. We get to see the sites of The County again after a cold winter, laugh with our best pals, and sip wine while we’re at it – does it get any better? We certainly don’t think so!  

If you, too, want to enjoy the authentic tastes, sounds, and views of spectacular Prince Edward County, then we highly recommend going on a wine tour.  

You can organize it yourself and draw straws for a designated driver, or we’ll happily take you around ourselves in one of our premium tour vehicles. From big bachelorette groups to a small group of friends to date night for a couple, we’ve got you covered no matter what the size of your group.  

If you’re interested, head to our website to learn more about exploring The County’s best wineries and breweries with us.  

Enjoy “Dinner and a Show” at Karlo Estates 

 Picture this: It’s Saturday night. You’re sitting at Karlo Estates’ gorgeous barn. A gentle breeze blows across your neck, keeping you comfortably cool, as you settle in for an intimate evening of wine, food, and live music. 

 That’s exactly what these “Dinner and a Show” nights are like. They’re happening every Saturday this spring and will feature different artists and meals, with three wines thoughtfully paired to perfectly complement the evening.  


Attend the OH HAYYYYY!!! Drag Show at The Hayloft Dancehall 

On May 21st, this historic barn on the shores of Lake Ontario is opening its doors to some of the finest drag performers from Toronto, Kingston, Montreal, and beyond – and you have the chance to attend! Here’s how The Hayloft describes the event – we think they put it perfectly: 

“Shout out HAAAAAYYY as talented drag performers slay the stage with sickening looks, fierce lipsyncs, and shady comments on the mic.” 

Head over to Eventbrite to grab your tickets if you’re interested in attending. (And if you want to stay for the Barn Party that night too, then you’ll need another ticket for that.) 

Take part in the 7th Annual Rotary Lilac Ride 

On May 29th, hope on your bike and witness some of The County’s gorgeous cycling routes, taking you through Big Island, Northport, and Green Point. 

The Annual Rotary Lilac Ride supports local charities, such as Reaching for Rainbows, Back the Build, and more. This year, it is held in memory of Jim Barkman, former Chair of the Lilac Ride.   

Riders can choose from three distances: 25km, 50km, or 100km. Refreshments will be provided at checkpoints along the course, and after the ride, you’ll wrap up the day with a delicious barbeque.  

Learn more about the event and how to register on the Rotary Club of Picton’s website
