Binder Twine Festival

The Binder Twine Festival, or usually Binder Twine, is an annual festival held the first Saturday after Labour Day every year in Kleinburg, Ontario, Canada.

In the late 1800s, farmers would come to the community to acquire twine with which they could bind sheaves of wheat. Charlie Shaw, a resident, offered food and entertainment to those farmers, hence the festival was born.

In 1967, a committee of residents revived the concept as part of Canada's Centennial celebrations.

Organized and operated entirely by volunteers, Binder Twine has become a successful community event, and has resulted in new town signage, and the creation of Binder Twine Park.

The festival features the Binder Twine Queen contest and a Quilt Raffle, along with craft sales and musical entertainment.
