“The Amherstburg Chamber of Commerce is to be commended for stepping forward and creating a Windsor Essex Harvest Festival to celebrate local food and drink.

"We believe that holding premier events such as the Harvest Fest, allows us to celebrate the efforts of all local, engaged businesses within our region; that’s what makes Windsor Essex incredibly special!” comments Tim Ternosky; president of the Amherstburg Chamber of Commerce.

“Our region is blessed with a rich culture of place, source, people and product. Why not recognize the producers who work hard every day to bring local fare to the table.” adds event chairperson, Aldo DiCarlo.
