Things to Do
Float Your Fanny
Float Your Fanny Down the Ganny is a 10km race along the Ganaraska River to commemorate the 1980 flood that crippled Port Hope's downtown area.
Experience top productions and concerts in historic and picturesque Port Hope; the Capitol has become a “must-see” Ontario destination.
Many areas of the old town remain little changed from the days of Queen Victoria. Like a time capsule, Port Hope captures the flavour of small town Ontario in the late 1800s.
Ganaraska Forest Centre
The Ganaraska Forest provides hundreds of kilometers of trails for a variety of activities, including hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and nature appreciation. Seasonal events can be found @GanaraskaFC
Brimacombe Ski Slopes
Rated "The Best in the Snow Business" by the Canadian Ski Council, Brimacombe caters to the traditional skier, as well as the snowboarder who wants to jib all day long in one of our terrain parks.
The All-Canadian Jazz Festival
Google “Canadian Jazz” and you’ll find this festival near the top of the list. This 3-day tented outdoor Port Hope festival is ceremoniously mastered by talented Jazz Vocalist/Radio Personality hysterical Heather Bambrick, who can’t wait to return to this “cool hang… in the sweetest small town venue”.
“ My wife and I cycled out east from Toronto and found this wonderful gem just west of Port Hope. We had one of the best nights at a B&B in our entire lifetime. For one, the property and house is absolutely gorgeous as it maintains a classic rustic feel along with all the beautiful fixtures and decorations.
Then there’s the hosts Jenny and Dan - they were extremely kind, generous, helpful and welcoming. It was great chatting with them and just as amazing was Jenny’s cooking. We opted to have dinner (at a modest additional cost) which came with a delicious appetizer, main, and dessert (homemade strawberry ice cream) ! The next morning we were also treated with an incredible breakfast.
What also was pleasant was having had one of the most restful nights sleep in a long time. So all in all, the Brandon Manor was a really great first time experience which we’d love to experience again!
