The City of Owen Sound has issued the following release regarding a new event this year ~ 


Join us to celebrate the Downtown River Precinct with a brand new event in downtown Owen Sound on Saturday, September 28th from 4:00 PM - 11:00 PM.

Riverside Reunion is a one-day, rain-or-shine event that celebrates the Sydenham River in this inclusive public space.  

The 'Main Stage' will be located on 1st Avenue East between the Owen Sound Farmers' Market and City Hall, and will feature Zac Brown Band Tribute Artists, Chicken Fried, as well as local musicians Emma Wright, Megan Morrison and Behind Bars. 

Family focused activities will be provided by the Owen Sound Farmers' Market and take place in the Market Square.

Learn about the fall Salmon Run and enjoy some local salmon and other delicious food from vendors along 1st Avenue East. (If you are a food vendor who would like to participate in Riverside Reunion, visit and complete the form under the "Get Involved" heading).
