The Foursome

September 20-24 (7 performances)

By Norm Foster

From The Foster Festival

Performed on an actual golf course!

Rick, Ted, Donnie, and Cameron are home for their fifteen-year college reunion; a great time to go out for a game of golf and catch up on each other’s lives. Unlike their college days, the conversation doesn’t include talk of beer and final exams, but of colonoscopies, home-security systems, alcoholism, Buddhism, and more.

Mary of Shanty Bay

October 5 - 9

By Leah Holder

From Theatre by the Bay

Location: Simcoe Street Theatre, Collingwood

This beautiful and historical story was created from the diaries of Mary Sophia Gapper, who visited Canada in 1828, married Edward O’Brien, and then settled at the ‘edge of the world’ in Oro Township. This is a heartwarming examination of a part of our regional history and the settlement of Shanty Bay.

THE 2022 PORCHSIDE FESTIVAL SHOWS WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON MONDAY, MAY 2nd and tickets will go on sale for everyone that day. 13 different shows (drama or concerts) and a total of 39 performances throughout July, all of which will take place on or around the beautiful porches of Collingwood!

TICKETS SELL VERY QUICKLY SO MARK THIS ON YOUR CALENDAR. This year we will also be offering a special personal charcuterie box and drink that you can purchase with your tickets and enjoy during the shows. Make it a picnic! A variety of local artists will also be located at the yards, showing and selling their creations. An all-around great and creative time out, so grab your friends and family and plan to attend The Porchside Festival!
