21st annual SportsFest returns to Port Colborne

Posted by Michelle Idzenga on Tuesday, January 21st, 2020

The 21st annual SportsFest returns to Port Colborne Feb. 7-9, 2020. For more than 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, Port Cares, Special Olympics Ontario, and our Active Camps program.

"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 thankful for the support of several community groups and local businesses who have organized sports tournaments, free family fun activities, and events for the music lovers, foodies, and euchre players too. We’re also looking forward to being ‘freezin’ for a reason’ at our inaugural polar plunge."
