CLEARVIEW, ON- The Clearview Township Recreation Department was pleased to accept two awards on behalf of the Clearview Township Small Halls Festival from the Festivals & Events Ontario (FEO) awards ceremony held on Friday, March 2nd, 2018.

The festival was awarded the ‘Top 100’ award and the ‘Best Social Media Campaign’ award for the 150-day festival photo countdown.

Reaching over 247,000 people on Facebook, and 133,000 people on Twitter, the countdown to the Small Halls Festival campaign helped to highlight the very best of Clearview Township. A key component to the campaign was to feature the small hall facilities along with faces and places around Clearview Township, while also supporting and showcasing local volunteers, community groups, festival sponsors and local attractions.

“I would like to extend my congratulations to all hall board members, festival volunteers and Township staff that worked diligently to ensure the continued success of the Small Halls Festival,” explained Mayor Christopher Vanderkruys. “Being awarded and recognized as both a Top 100 Festival and with the Best Social Media campaign award on a provincial-wide scale is a great accomplishment.”

The 2018 Small Halls Festival is happening on September 27th - 30th. Watch for festival updates and programming announcements online at:
