Carleton Place’s old fashioned Community Picnic



Our annual family picnic! This year, join us on July 16 as we “Picnic Like It’s 1916”. Join the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum on July 16th for an Old Fashioned Community Picnic.

Spend the afternoon in the Victoria School Gardens and enjoy an old fashioned community picnic! We are also offering two walking tours guided by local author Linda Seccaspina!

Bring a blanket and find a shady spot in the Victoria School Garden to eat your picnic. Treats and beverages will be available at a small cost. Live music, historical displays and visitors from the past make for an enjoyale afternoon. Dress in costume, or try on an outfit at our dress-up station.
This year you will be treated to the Carleton Place and District Horticultural Society’s Summer Flower Show, taking place inside the Museum. If you’ve never been to a flower show, you must see this! Decorative categories this year honour the Museum building’s past. They include “Teacher’s Pet” and Prisoner Behind Bars”!!
