The Venue 
8:30 PM - 11:30 PM Our Routes are Exploring: Closing Gala Dinner

What better way to close the conference than with a Voyageur themed event? We take great pride in our heritage and to celebrate the anniversary of Champlain’s exploration through our beautiful and unique region, we will step back in time to an era of trade, traditions and travel. We can hardly wait to celebrate getting back to our roots, can-oe?

There’s definitely “something in the water” here; so many talented musicians have roots in Peterborough & the Kawarthas. During the Closing Gala you will enjoy a special performance by Doug Leahy and the Next Generation Leahy. Building on over three generations of Leahy musicianship, Doug Leahy, together with his wife Jennifer and their children, are keeping those traditions alive through music, song, and dance.
