Get Your Event Noticed

At Visit The County, we curate a year-round calendar of exciting tourism events on our website, designed to enhance the visitor experience in our beautiful destination.

The Visit The County event calendar is key to notifying the marketing staff of your event and how we can elevate your event in tourism content marketing. VTC also works closely with South Eastern Ontario (RTO9),  Destination Ontario, provincial sector associations, and visiting media to elevate your event promotions to their audiences. For maximum benefit, please add your event to early to allow our partners’ production time.
