Mattawa Voyageur Days has been named in the TOP1OO Festivals and Events in Ontario for seven consecutive years (2008-2013) by Festivals and Events Ontario and have sold out six of the last seven years.
Every summer since 1997, the Mattawa Voyageur Days Festival is held the last weekend of July. It is organized by the Town of Mattawa and takes place behind the Museum on Explorer’s Point. Some of the events include a regional talent night, lumberjack competition, and canoe race. Live music is a large part of the Festival, and has in the past included such notable Canadian musicians as April Wine, Trooper, Saga, Loverboy, Honeymoon Suite, Chuck Labelle and David Wilcox, among others like Liteside and other local singers and musicians from inside and outside the region play on the Thursday night.
As part of tradition, on the Sunday of the event at dusk there is a choreographed fireworks show.
A Saturday headliner is expected to be announced soon and organizers promise that it will “blow you away.”
