Crowfest Coming to CK Soon!

A Celebration of All Things Crow

Crowfest is a celebration of the crow in Chatham-Kent. While crows are in Chatham-Kent year round,  they are very noticeable in the month of October. The crow, in most cultures, represents luck or wisdom.  There will be daily activities in downtown Chatham leading up to the main events on the 14th and 15th of October. 

The entire downtown core will be decorated with wreaths on the light poles along with some fun “picture themed” areas the week of Crowfest. On the evening of Wednesday October 12th, there will be a dueling pianos; on the 13th, the 1st annual Crowfest Gala will be held at the Chatham Armouries; and on the 14th, buskers from around the world will be performing along with a downtown Chatham Night Market. On Saturday the 15th the buskers will return to the downtown area, there will be the “Crow Your Boat” race from bridge to bridge, a costume contest with 10,000$ in prizes, and many other activities.
