Truly a match made in heaven… Thank you to our well-respected local arts facilitators at Waterford Old Town Hall for partnering with our team to present two time Juno award winning Canadian Artist / Environmentalist Sarah Harmer in our amphitheater this summer. The word most repeated throughout the night was "magical". The garden gods conspired to present a day nothing less than exquisite. The wine and the wonder, the delicacies for VIPs, the twinkle lights at twilight and the scent of summer blooms in an outdoor palace set the scene for an evening of breath-catching moments when whimsy and awe collided, and somehow new emotions were collectively experienced. Everything, yes, EVERYTHING about Sarah Harmer Live was perfect… and she and her band were acoustically extraordinary!

Thank you generous sponsors Canadian Heritage, Fanshawe College and Scotia Bank Simcoe, Adventure RV, E & J Septic, Designing Dreams. Supporters Norfolk County Fair and Horse Show, ZORTECH LED, Sherry Smith Photography, Simcoe Chamber of Commerce and our local suppliers Villa Nova Estate Winery, Bonnie Heath Estate Winery, Burning Kiln Winery, Chef Tracy Winkworth & our collaborative team of 30+ caring volunteers magnifying your joy!
