A vendor show for Brides and Grooms to explore top notch vendors. We understand weddings can be expensive - so there is no admission fee for the show.
(Optional donation happily accepted to Canadian PKU and Allied Disorders - a jar will be available.)
Come out and meet some wonderful vendors who can help you make your wedding visions come true. Whether your ideal wedding is in an old cathedral, a white sand beach, your parents back yard or anywhere in between - our vendors are ready to help!
Check out Personal Touch Catering and Banquet Hall. Are they right for you? The former Parkway Banquet hall is under new ownership and has made some great changes to help you with your day. Want a Jack and Jill location, a venue that can cater or allows outside catering, or a hall with a separate area for the Bride and Groom to hideaway for a minute or an area for the bridal party to freshen up - Yep, they have that too!
Grooms Room - We are doing our best to set up an area for the men to enjoy this show as well. This will be dependent on vendors to accommodate it. Bring on the grooms!

A Not-for-Profit Canadian PKU and Allied Disorders hosts a camp every year in the Kawarthas. This camp helps families and those affected by a rare metabolic disorder (who every baby born in Ontario since the mid 60's has been tested for) named Phenylketonuria or PKU for short. PKU affects the ability to break down proteins in foods. When every bite you eat has the risk of causing brain damage if it is the wrong food, eating can become the center of your life. This camp helps put the focus off the food (while others help manage it) and back onto fun!
VESA was established in 2009 with a vision to promote Direct Actiosity support in communities and regions where traditional charities and aid do not operate. VESA has worked within the same communities since inception – using short term projects like house building or school refurbishments along with conservation projects to work toward achieving a long term sustainable solution to the social and environmental issues that these communities face. Two students from Trent university will join the mission in Fiji this summer and have requested our assistance in raising some of the $4500 fees they each require.
