Tiny Township is inviting the community to join them at their annual community barbecue "for the biggest and most highly anticipated event of the year."

Slated for Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Perkinsfield Park, this year's theme is “A Tiny Place for All,” which highlights "our commitment to being an inclusive community and celebrates everyone of all ages and abilities."

The event offers 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 our recreation programs and activities, and the opportunity to discover unique finds at the vendor fair.

Some of the highlights of the day include what is available in the family fun zone such as magical performances, inflatables, the chance to experience what it’s like to be a firefighter, face-painting and the main stage schedule featuring both Ariko and the Karla Crawford Band.

Many other partners will be offering 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 the Wye Marsh.

There will be free shuttle services available from Lafontaine Park and the township's soccer pitches at 29 Concession Road 5 East. Buses will start from the respective locations at 11 a.m., with continuous service to and from the event until the last call at 3 p.m. from the event grounds at Perkinsfield Park.

“The annual Community BBQ is our biggest event of the year, and we can’t wait to welcome you to this fantastic celebration of the Tiny community,” Mayor David Evans said.

"Whether you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind gift at the vendor fair, want to take in live music at the main stage, spend time with the family or savour a delicious BBQ meal, there’s something for the whole community to enjoy. We hope to see you there!”

The township didn't say whether vegetarian barbecue options will be available.
