Welcome to Fenelon Falls!

Submitted by Marylee Boston

Fenelon Falls is a destination for day trippers, cottagers and local tourists alike and sometimes they need a little help making the most of their visit. The goal of the summer Tourism Ambassador program is to welcome, inform, direct and have fun with visitors so their time here is memorable and those great memories that will bring them back time and again.

The Tourism Ambassador program launched in the summer of 2018 with only two Ambassadors. Last summer was a success and showed that there was opportunity to expand and grow the concept so this summer there are 5 Tourism Ambassadors! The TA’s are local students who bring their own experience, enthusiasm, tech smarts and hometown knowledge to the job. You will see them all around downtown Fenelon Falls, at the museum, the beach park, and the locks in their bright blue uniforms. They are also helping the Horticulture Society volunteers take care of the many beautiful gardens in the village. 

Whether you have family coming to visit, you’re a long time cottager, or a local; the Tourism Ambassadors can help you find restaurants, accommodations, attractions and event information. They can also be convinced to give clues to help you solve our summer Mystery Adventure - The Hunt for the Jewel of the Kawarthas. Their home base is the Tourist Info Centre on Oak Street in Fenelon Falls. The Chamber of Commerce is excited to promote Fenelon Falls and area with the help of our Tourism Ambassadors. Please say hello when you see them around town.
