Town of Petawawa Community Events 2021

It is with deep regret that we announce the cancellation of this year’s Petawawa Civic Centre Days (June 17 -20th) and Canada Day Celebrations (July1st) events.
This is not a decision we have taken lightly as there are two overriding concerns that have guided us to make this decision at this time.

First and foremost is the concern of the well-being and health of residents and visitors of the Town of Petawawa during large scale events. In these unforeseen times we must ensure all events are planned and implemented in a safe and secure manor for all that participate.

Secondly, event organizers cannot implement a well-structured event in these unfamiliar times as event parameters are currently not defined or established and therefore making it very difficult to organize and move forward with community events.

We hope you understand and we look forward to planning new and exciting events in the future for you and your families.
