City of Windsor Birthday

Each year, we celebrate the City of Windsor's Birthday with a Mayor's Walk along the riverfront and a birthday party at Festival Plaza. This is an opportunity to join in some free family fun to celebrate Winsor alongside citizens from all across the city.

Join the Team to Help Celebrate Windsor's 125th Birthday

City of Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens is inviting members of the public to join a Community Committee to help conceive, organize and execute events and activities to celebrate Windsor's milestone 125th Birthday in 2017.

The City of Windsor has a long tradition of celebrating its rich history and heritage and highlighting the stories that make Windsor so unique.  Through its 20-Year Strategic Vision, Windsor Council made a commitment to Windsor being a dynamic place of civic pride and a hub for innovation, culture and creativity. 

While the City will host its traditional annual birthday party and Mayor's Walk on Saturday, May 20, 2017, there is an opportunity for additional events, activities and projects to be undertaken in connection to this important anniversary.

"This is an opportunity for people to come together and have a voice in how we celebrate the 125th birthday of our City," said Mayor Drew Dilkens.  "We know the City's official birthday party will be an inclusive, immersive, interactive, bold, can't-miss event, but is there an opportunity to do something more?  This committee is for people with ideas and the willingness to invest the effort required to bring them to life."

While a meeting will follow at a later time in the fall, those interested in being a part of this committee are asked to email to provide your contact details by Friday, October 7, 2016.

All Windsor residents, businesses, organizations, community groups, etc., are welcome to take part in this discussion to help make Windsor the place to be in 2017.
