ELGIN DAY, Saturday, August 8th was a community celebration that picked up on the timing and spirit of the former Elgin Blueberry Maplefest . . .

ELGIN DAY 2009 was truly a co-operative effort involving the Elgin Eco Association and Women’s Institute, the Elgin Volunteer Fire Department and Elgin Seniors Club. ELGIN DAY was centred at the Women’s Institute Hall, the historic hub of the community, located at 32 Gowland Mountain Road. There was activities at the ball field, Laurie Bishop Senior Centre, and round and about our lovely rural churches. Also the vanGeest Dairy Farm was open for touring. Visitors began their farm and church tour by picking up a map at the Senior Centre Open House.

All proceeds from ELGIN DAY go towards the Community Endowment Fund.

ELGIN DAY began at 10 a.m. Everyone enjoyed a variety of judged exhibits in the WI Hall and displays featuring a GREEN theme with emphasis on local nature photography, recycling, organic gardening and farming, eco groups such as Fundy Model Forest

There was fun for everyone, from children’s activities, afternoon music, chain saw sculpture demo, kettle boil, old-fashioned races and contests, and restored antique tractors. A washers area was set up for anyone who wanted to play, plus outdoor vendors and produce market, noon hour barbecue, and those famous WI blueberry sundaes.

New this year was the Women’s Institute Roast Beef Supper and Old Time Music at The Hall.


Be Watching For Elgin's Upcoming Events

Elgin W.I. Fall Supper on Saturday, September 26th. Every year the Elgin Women’s Institute serves 300-400 delicious turkey suppers at its annual gathering. Long an Elgin tradition, the supper benefits from the efforts of many local volunteers under the experienced guidance of the W.I. People come from far and wide to enjoy the fall foliage and to catch up with friends, old and new.

6th Annual “Tour of Elgin” Mountain Bike Race on Saturday, October 3rd. Again meticulously planned by an experienced local committee (and sanctioned by Velo NB), this marquee event draws cyclists from around the Maritimes. The Eco Association believes the “Tour of Elgin” showcases what’s best about our area: its recreational potential and its friendly people!
