Orono – The Village with a Difference!
Come discover this lively little Village in the Municipality of Clarington. Downtown Orono has a wide variety of antique shops, eclectic shopping, parks, entertainment and a handful of dining experiences. There is a tremendous amount to see and do. Whether you like the excitement of a Fall Fair, the quiet of a small-town Christmas, or the pleasure of your own outdoor activities, Orono has something for you!
Our historic Town Hall is host to many weddings, musical entertainers, and various artisans and craft festivals. The Orono Fall Fair, 159 years strong, is an annual event held the first weekend after Labour Day in September. Hot stuff – Our Chili Cook-Off contest is a yearly event where contestants cook-up their home-made chili – right on Main Street! The Antiques and Art Street Festival, a daylong event that fills Main Street with antique dealers, is fast becoming the destination to be in August. To see what is happening, view our event calendar here.
The ever popular Orono Park is a wonderful setting for your family reunion, family picnic or just a nice place to get together for a day of play, swimming, baseball, and now skateboarding. For park information contact the Municipality of Clarington here.
Another popular spot – the Orono Crown Lands – provides a trusted area for a variety of outdoor activities, including fishing, cycling, cross-country skiing, dog walking, bird watching, horseback riding, snowshoeing and tobogganing. Visit their website here.
