Fall Celebrations

Fall Events in and near Bowmanville

We enjoy the many local events that have evolved and are so wonderful.  We encourage you to go to them too, and volunteer or participate in whatever way works for you.  Many of them offer local business sponsorship opportunities, several are free and all are fun.

BCO/Griffin Theatre Bowmanville Oktoberfest – usually late September (not being held in 2016).

To support Griffin Theatre please consider buying season tickets to the Griffin current season (3 shows for $90!).  

In 2014 and 2015 we teamed up with Griffin Theatre to celebrate fall with local beers on tap.  We seek individuals and businesses to sponsor this annual event, and local bands to perform.  If you or a business or musician you know can consider sponsorship or performing please contact events@bcochicago.org.
