2021 Acton Leathertown Festival
BRIDGING ACTON’S CULTURAL PAST
Celebrating the Acton Community and its Members
The first BIA Festival started back in 1977. The community gathered, commercial activity in the downtown increased, and funds were raised to refurbish the Town Hall. This 2020/2021 pandemic will not keep the event down and ruin the tradition. This year marks Acton’s 44th annual festival and we plan to do whatever we can to make this year as memorable as every year before.
Taking place on the second Sunday of August, family and friends are encouraged to gather as a community once again for this year’s Leathertown Festival! We are currently unsure of what this year’s festival is going to look like, however, we are working on ideas every day to plan the optimal event. With everyone in mind, we plan to make the festival as fun and entertaining as in past years while still ensuring everyone’s safety during the ongoing pandemic. Despite the uncertainty, we will be sure to give updates as soon as they become available.
We hope to see everyone at this year’s festival, no matter how it is held!
“Acton has been a proud Canadian leader for more than 179 years in the leather and crafts industries.”
