Binder Twine 2017

Kleinburg, Vaughan, Ontario L0J 1C0

View Map
An annual Kleinburg highlight in September is the Binder Twine Festival. It began in the late 1800′s when farmers came to the community to buy twine to bind their sheaves of wheat together. Charlie Shaw, owner of Shaw’s Hardware Store in Kleinburg, offered food and entertainment to the visiting farmers and an annual celebration was born, continuing until his death in 1931.

In 1967, a small committee revived the concept of Binder Twine as Kleinburg’s centennial project. It was so successful that it once again became an annual event. Occurring in September, this exciting festival features juried craft exhibitors, great food and entertainment.

An exciting day filled with unique crafts, great entertainment, Olde Tyme activities and great food awaits the entire family. The entire site is wheelchair accessible. For many, the highlight of the day is a unique Queen Contest where eligible “young ladies” (age 16 to eternity) call a hog, flip pancakes, hammer nails, and even milk a cow! The first official duty of the newly crowned Binder Twine Queen is to draw the winning ticket for the festival’s Quilt Raffle.
