Festival and Events Ontario is out with its 2014 Top 100 list and Windsor-Essex is represented well.

Art in the Park, Windsor Summer Fest, Balloonapalooza, Carrousel of Nations and the Windsor International Film Festival all made the list from Windsor.

Kingsville’s Fantasy of Lights Festival, LaSalle’s Strawberry Festival, Amherstburg’s River Lights Winter Festival and Shores of Erie International Wine Festival along with Tecumseh’s Corn Festival and Art of Eating Food and Wine Festival all made the list in Essex County. The Town of Tecumseh also walks away with the 2014 Best Festival City award for the population under 200,000 category while Ottawa took the honour in the population over 200,000 category.

FEO members made submissions for consideration in fall 2013 and were judged by an independent panel. Awards were given out on Saturday at the FEO’s annual conference Excite and Energize in Richmond Hill.
