Tweed: find adventure right in your backyard

The Municipality of Tweed is the perfect venue for outdoor enthusiasts. Whether you enjoy hiking, paddling, fishing, or local will find the perfect adventure here in Our Backyard

Located half way between Toronto and Ottawa, the Municipality of Tweed is an accessible playground for all ages.

When fresh air is calling let it take you to our destination.  The Eastern Ontario Trails network and various other trails that run through majestic forests and along pristine waterways will make you forget about your busy city living.  It’s time to take a break and breathe in the fresh, clean air and embark on a signature Ontario experience.  Enjoy a one day or multi-day trip exploring our rivers and lakes. Grab your paddle, a canoe or kayak, and a partner and enjoy the rivers and lakes throughout Our Backyard.

Lace up those hiking boots and hit the trail.  With two conservation areas, Vanderwater Park and Price Conservation, our region has hikes for families of all ages.  Angling for an adventure?  The numerous lakes, rivers and streams in and around the area make the Municipality of Tweed a very popular sport-fishing destination.  As many anglers will tell you our number one attraction, Stoco Lake, is known for world-class muskie, gar-pike, and black crappie fishing.  Be sure to register for one of our winter or spring Stoco Lake Black Crappie Fishing Tournaments. 

While you are in the Municipality of Tweed, depending on the season, take time to tour Potter Settlement Winery, visit one of the local maple sugar bushes, join in the fun at our annual Tweed Agricultural Fair, the Festival of Trees, or the Winter Carnival.

 The Municipality of Tweed also has a thriving literary, musical and artistic culture ready for you to enjoy.  Attend a “Tweed & Company” theatre production at the Marble Arts Centre, have some toe tapping fun as you listen to music in the park on Sundays throughout the summer, or view some local talent at Art in the Park or during the Tweed & Area Studio Tour.

 Whether you want to cheer on the last true cowboys (Tweed Stampede & Jamboree) or celebrate with the ‘King’ (Tweed Elvis Festival), the Municipality of Tweed has something for you.  Our four-season destination is packed with festivals and events year-round.  And if you are a foodie you’re not going to want to miss “Feast from Farm” each fall, featuring some of the very best chefs producing tasty samples of local food products.
