Cornwall Ontario – Downtown Cornwall promises to be wall-to-wall sales, smiles and smells as the 2018 edition of the Downtown Summer Celebration gets underway.

Downtown Summer Celebration

A number of businesses in the Downtown will be celebrating from July 26 to 29 by staying open late, offering special discounts and with the odd contest thrown in. The event kicks off with the over a dozen artists displaying their work for Cornwall Art Walk on Thursday evening.

With thousands of Cornwall residents and visitors expected to congregate in and around Lamoureux Park for Cornwall Ribfest, business owners felt it is a great time to put their best downtown foot forward.

“Summer is always a popular time and we see an increase in the number of people in our beautiful downtown,” said DBIA chair Brenda Campbell. “With events like the Downtown Summer Celebration it makes the experience for individuals that much sweeter.”

2018 marks the fifth consecutive year that downtown merchants have held a “Summer Celebration.”

“Downtown Cornwall has never been more vibrant and we want to give back to the community,” says Chris Munro of Life’s Little Pleasures. “Summer is a busy time in the city, and the last weekend in July is a great time to celebrate.”
