Annual Ancaster Heritage Days

History of Ancaster Heritage Days

In 1979, Ancaster resident and shop owner Bette Fraser believed that people didn’t know each other well enough in the town, and came up with the idea for Ancaster Heritage Days. With the help of her friend Ann Sloat, Bette began planning a festival where the community could get to know each other and enjoy the sights and sounds of their beautiful town. That June, the first Ancaster Heritage Days kicked-off, and included the Old Mill race and a grand sidewalk sale. Within five years, Ancaster Heritage Days had become a tradition and grew in popularity. One of the early highlights was the Heritage Days parade, where curious onlookers would line Wilson Street, marveling in the antique and horse drawn carriages, police paddy wagons, bands and other exciting performers from the area. Other events during the early years also included downhill bed races, spaghetti eating-contests, and the Heritage Days beauty pageant, where participants anxiously waited to find out who would be the next Heritage Princess. These were also the early days of the dances, pancake breakfasts, and annual crowd favourites: the strawberry social, antique car show, and sidewalk sale, which draws crowds from young to old to the heart of the town. Since Bette’s first idea in 1979, Ancaster Heritage Days has become the high point in the annual events calendar in the area, and this year is no different. From the Old Mill Race to the fireworks display and everything in between, this multiple-day event, has something for the entire family. Come out and celebrate Ancaster Heritage Days!

Anne Frank


The story of Anne Frank and her life of hiding in the Secret Annex during the Second World War is a story of perseverance and bravery. Living for almost 2 years in hiding during the Nazi occupation of Holland, she recorded her daily thoughts in a journal. Today, her journal is a testament to the prejudice that was faced by so many during the Holocaust.

The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum is proud to present “Anne Frank- A History for Today” from the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam. Featuring the story of Anne Frank and artifacts never before displayed in Canada. The exhibit will also focus on Canada’s role in the Liberation of Holland and the prejudices and discrimination that some Canadians faced, including those in the RCAF.
