July 14, 2024, Tiny, Ontario – The Township of Tiny was thrilled to host the community at the annual Community BBQ for the biggest and most highly anticipated event of the year. There was fun, food, and festivities on Saturday, July 13, 2024, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in Perkinsfield Park (43 County Road 6 South, Tiny).

This year’s theme was “A Tiny Place for All”, which highlights our commitment to being an inclusive community and celebrates everyone of all ages and abilities.

The event offered the Tiny community a day of excitement filled with delicious food hot off the grill, live music, a family fun zone, a disc golf station, a Rec Zone dedicated to showcasing the recreation programs and activities, and the opportunity to discover unique finds at the vendor fair. Some of the highlights of the day was the family fun zone with magical performances, inflatables, the chance to experience what it’s like to be a firefighter, facepainting, and the main stage schedule that features the musical acts of both Ariko and the Karla Crawford Band.

There were several community partners at the event such as Enbridge Gas cooking up all of the BBQ treats, Foodland Midland provided watermelons, and Ritchie’s Feeds ‘n Needs and Garden Centre donatied troughs for the drinks. Many other partners offered crafts and activities, including Midland Public Library, Springwater Public Library, Severn Sound Environmental Association (SSEA), Awenda Provincial Park, Huronia Historical Parks, Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, and Wye Marsh!

There was free shuttle services again this year from the Township of Tiny Soccer Pitches (29 Concession Road 5 East) and Lafontaine Park (342 Lafontaine Road West). Buses started from the respective locations at 11:00 a.m., with continuous service to and from the event until the last call at 3:00 p.m. from the event grounds at Perkinsfield Park.

The annual Community BBQ was the townships biggest event of the year.
