Binder Twine Festival
Admission is free if you come dressed as a pioneer
"An exciting day filled with unique crafts, great entertainment, Olde Tyme activities and great food awaits the entire family. The entire site is wheelchair accessible. For many, the highlight of the day is a unique Queen Contest where eligible “young ladies” (age 16 to eternity) call a hog, flip pancakes, hammer nails, and even milk a cow! The first official duty of the newly crowned Binder Twine Queen is to draw the winning ticket for the festival’s Quilt Raffle.
The Binder Twine Festival is an annual festival that is held the first Saturday after Labour Day. In the late 1800s farmers would come to the community to acquire twine so they could bind sheaves of wheat. Local resident Charlie Shaw would offer food and entertainment to the farmers, unknowingly starting a tradition that would continue year after year. Entirely organized and operated by volunteers, Binder Twine has become a successful community event and has resulted in new town signage and the creation of Binder Twine Park.
