Calling all amateur photographers to our 1st annual photography contest to be held at our annual Heritage Fall Fair, Saturday September 24th.

We are looking for photos, taken in the last year that represent the unique character that we hold so dear and work to protect in Oakville.  Photos can include old and heritage buildings, landmarks both built and natural as well as any other photos that capture the spirit and longevity of our town.

Photos must be printed in at least a 5” x 7” format. 

All photos must be delivered by 11am on our Heritage Fair Fair on September 24, 2022.

Please include your name, phone number and email address on the back of the photo and if you will be picking up your photo.

Judging will take place at 1pm.  Prizes include Amazon gift cards and movie vouchers.

The winning photos will be displayed at the TTHS Palermo one-room schoolhouse. All other photos can be picked up before 3pm at the schoolhouse.
