This year’s Ancaster Heritage Days Parade will be held on Saturday, June 9, 2018, and starts at 10 a.m. at the corner of Wilson and Academy Streets!

The Annual Ancaster Heritage Days Parade runs for approximately 40 minutes and the route is about 2km long, starting at Wilson and Academy Streets, and ending at Wilson and Todd Streets.

Let’s Celebrate Ancaster’s Heritage.” A prize will be awarded for the best use of theme.
