The quaint hamlet of Franktown in Beckwith Township plays host each year to a festival that celebrates an explosion of fragrant colour! This year the Franktown Lilac Festival takes place in May in the heart of the hamlet, with many activities at Centennial Hall, 152 Church Street. Start things off with a hearty pancake breakfast, then take part in the children’s bike parade, followed by an afternoon of music. Enjoy a wagon ride to see the sights. Franktown was established in 1818-19 as the site of a supply store between Richmond and Perth and has a rich history with many examples of compelling eastern Ontario architecture along its famous Lilac Lane. Free admission.
