Looking Back and Moving Forward
It’s time to celebrate, Innisfil turns 200!
The Bicentennial is an opportunity to tell the vibrant story of Innisfil and the people, the history of life in this small rural town, looking back on the past 200 years while embracing the next 100 to come with the innovative growth of the future. It’s an opportunity to celebrate and innovate, to reflect and look forward to what’s to come.
This milestone will be celebrated with special virtual events throughout the year, so mark your calendars and plan to come be a part of the year-long birthday celebration! More details to follow.
