Heritage Week in Ontario helps showcase Grimsby’s local heritage


The Town of Grimsby in partnership with The Grimsby Museum, Grimsby Public Art Gallery, Grimsby Historical Society and Archives, Nelles Manor Heritage House, and Willowbank School of Restoration Arts, are pleased to bring you Heritage Week 2024. From February 19 – 25, we invite you to celebrate Heritage Week to reflect how heritage is conserved, promoted, and commemorated.

The Town of Grimsby will be providing ongoing updates for residents through our social media channels with posts highlighting various aspects of heritage in Grimsby. Each post will focus on the heritage legacy in our historic town.

To celebrate Heritage Week, Town Staff, along with Willowbank students, will once again be restoring notable artifacts from the Grimsby Museum collection at the campus of Willowbank School of Restoration Arts in Niagara on the Lake, which is a national historic site.

In 1985, the Ontario government designated the third week in February as Ontario Heritage Week, with the federal Heritage Day kicking off the week. Every February, the National Heritage Trust invites Ontarians to participate in Heritage Week in Ontario – to celebrate heritage in all its forms (cultural and natural, architectural, archaeological and collections), its diverse traditions and cultural expressions. Heritage Week provides a wonderful opportunity for individuals and communities to reflect on their contributions, how heritage is conserved and how they might shape the future.

For the Town of Grimsby’s heritage updates, follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
