The Ontario government is providing $10,389 through the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation to the City of Dryden for enhancements to the Dryden Fall Fest.

“The strategic investments our government continues to make through the NOHFC are supporting projects that raise community profiles and promote economic development opportunities across the region,” said Greg Rickford, Minister of Northern Development and Member of Provincial Parliament for Kenora-Rainy River.

“With nearly $10,400, the City of Dryden has brought on new performances and made enhancements that improve the overall visitor experience at the Dryden Fall Fest, and our government is proud to support this.”

The city is using the funding to upgrade signage, update interactive decor, install solar-powered lanterns along the Spirit Walk path, and add two new entertainers to this year’s roster.

The NOHFC promotes economic prosperity across Northern Ontario by providing financial assistance to projects—big and small, rural and urban—that stimulate growth, job creation, and skills development.

Since June 2018, the organization has invested more than $717 million in 5,875 projects in Northern Ontario, leveraging more than $2.3 billion in investment and creating or sustaining over 9,260 jobs
