20th Annual SportsFest returns to Port Colborne

Posted by Michelle Cuthbert on Tuesday, February 5th, 2019

The 20th Annual SportsFest returns to Port Colborne Feb. 8-10, 2019. For two decades, the Festival of Sports has provided activities for all ages and interests across the city. Several local charities benefit too, with proceeds from various events donated to the Port Colborne Fire & Emergency Services Fire Prevention Program, Bless the City, and Port Cares.

 

“In the middle of winter, when many of us feel like hibernating, SportsFest provides the community with an opportunity to get out, PORTicipate, and enjoy all that Port Colborne has to offer”, said Luke Rowe, event assistant and volunteer coordinator. “We’re fortunate with the support of several community groups and local business who have organized sports tournaments, free family fun activities, and events for the music lovers, foodies, and euchre players too.”

 

The full schedule of SportsFest activities are below, including many returning favourites:
