Downtown Orangeville features food, fashion and more this August

Downtown Orangeville is an inviting destination in the heart of the community and provides the perfect location for many of the Town’s most popular annual events. Two of these events – Great Taste Fashion Gala and Taste of Orangeville – happen in August and showcase downtown Orangeville’s impressive selection of local food and fashion. 
 
Great Taste Fashion Gala is the perfect ladies night out. On Friday, August 16 starting at 7 p.m., downtown boutiques will showcase their new collections of clothing and accessories while guests enjoy appetizers created by local restaurants. Tickets are $25 in advance and can be purchased online or at select downtown locations.
 
Taste of Orangeville is the culinary event of the summer! Indulge in tasting menus created by some of Orangeville’s best restaurants on Saturday, August 17. Live music adds ambiance to this popular event. Tasting tickets will be sold on site from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for $1.25 each with tastings available until 4 p.m. Admission is free. 
 
These events are certainly not the only reason to visit Orangeville’s historic downtown. The bustling Farmers’ Market is open Saturday mornings beside Town Hall and offers local produce, meat, flowers, baked goods, and artisan crafts. A market visit isn’t complete without a meander along Broadway, Orangeville’s award-winning main street. A unique selection of independently-owned shops and eateries greet visitors with street side patios and outdoor displays. During the summer, many businesses are open on Sundays giving both tourists and residents the opportunity to shop and dine downtown all weekend long. Live entertainment is also featured every Sunday courtesy of the Orangeville BIA.
