Healthy Living Festival

The Smiths Falls Downtown Business Association (DBA) has decided to step away from the very successful annual Healthy Living Festival after 6 years.

The event has grown each year quicker than we ever imagined. It was that success that has led to this difficult decision by the DBA Board of Directors. The event has become a very large undertaking requiring months and months of work and the DBA just doesn’t have the resources, staff time or volunteers to continue to organize this event.

The Town of Smiths Falls’ Economic Development and Tourism department has stepped up and would like to see a smaller version of the festival continue but they will need help from community volunteers. They are currently striking a new committee to look at continuing the event. If you are interested in being part of this group please contact Jennifer Miller, Manager Economic Development and Tourism by phone at 613-283-4124 or by email at

 The DBA Board of Directors would like to thank our staff and the many volunteers who worked so hard over the last 6 years to bring this successful event to our community.

The DBA has transferred all the Healthy Living Festival assets to the town. We are confident that they will be able to continue this popular festival in the future and wish them all the best.
