About Crowfest

Crowfest is a celebration of all things “crow” in Chatham-Kent. While crows are in Chatham-Kent year round, they are very noticeable in the month of October. The crow, in most cultures, represents luck or wisdom. There will be daily activities for Crowfest in downtown Chatham starting on Wednesday the 12th leading up to the main events on the 14th and 15th of October.

There are many activities happening during Crowfest which are listed below. Some of the highlights are dueling pianos on Wednesday October 12th, the Gala in the 13th, the night market and buskers on the 14th, and then the highlight of the celebration on Saturday the 15th.

Please look through the site and get involved, become a volunteer or vendor, enter the art or costume contest, or attend the gala and all the exciting events.
