We are thrilled this year to partner with the Kinsmen Club of the Cornwall for the Kinsmen In Motion Show and Shine as well as CoTiCon. These two events will extend from the Food Fest south to the Bandshell creating the largest on street event in the city this year and the only event that ties our beautiful waterfront to our downtown in one great event with music, food, shopping, and fun all day long!
The Cornwall Food Fest is a fundraiser for Beyond 21. Admission is a $2 bracelet with all proceeds going to Beyond 21. At Beyond 21 we partner with adults with a developmental disability to learn their dreams and help them gain the skills they need and make the connections they need in community to achieve their dreams. We are Dream Chasers! We currently support over 4000 participants throughout the year on their journey to achieving their dreams. All proceeds of this event go directly to programming for Beyond 21 participants. Join us on August 19th in the downtown and you can be a Dream Chaser too!
