Burk’s Falls / Ryerson Township
Burk’s Falls and Ryerson Township are our truly amazing hosts and they give us permission and support through permitting to host Harvest festival.
Having now spent 10 years in this small community we’ve learned a lot about how difficult it is for the tiny township to pay the bills of maintaining roads, commissioning EMS and the OPP’s services as well as the many other things that we all take for granted and usually feel entitled to. They run a budget and it is a hard for such a small community.
Things like a RIDE program or a call for EMS and traffic causing measurable wear and tear on the roads are all realities we as individuals never really take to heart or understand. And on top of that, they incur an increased level of legal liability when we host Harvest in the jurisdiction.
So what can we do to give back to our hosts who truly take on a lot to welcome us with open arms?
We’ve done a great job with the FOOD DRIVE and we’ve become vital to the town. We hear how grateful the community is regularly.
Another thing we can do is SUPPORT the LOCAL and ESPECIALLY SMALL BUSINESSES in town. These shops have a difficult time staying open and rare events like ours can make the difference between keeping the lights ON or OFF.
Here’s a list of the businesses you may find helpful. We, and they, appreciate your support but remember you are a HARVEST AMBASSADOR so always act accordingly.
