We're in the planning stages for the upcoming RHWC 2024 weekend, February 3 & 4, and Ookpik has been making some appearances around the city. Did you see him at the Merry Marketplace on November 18? He'll be popping up at other events in Richmond Hill too.

Big news! Richmond Hill MPs Majid Jowhari and Leah Taylor Roy announced that the Richmond Hill Winter Carnival is receiving a non-repayable contribution, as part of the Government of Canada's Tourism Relief Fund, through the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario.

This support means so much to our Winter Carnival volunteer committee, as we get our in-person carnival started again after a few years of COVID inaction!

Committee co-chair Doug Elliott accepted the official proclamation of the federal contribution on stage today, to much applause from the audience.

Our diamond and platinum sponsor boards show tangible recognition of vital support to this year’s carnival. Thanks so much!

Coprésident du comité, Doug Elliott, a accepté la proclamation officielle du gouvernement aux cérémonies d’ouverture, au grand plasir du public.

Un grand merci au gouvernement du Canada pour appuyer la réalisation de notre carnaval  hivernal!

Nos conseils de sponsors diamant et platine témoignent d'une reconnaissance tangible du soutien vital apporté au carnaval de cette année. Merci beaucoup!
