As though the alluring beaches and striking sunsets along the shores of Lake Huron were not enough to draw visitors to the community, Kincardine offers visitors and residents alike a wide selection of events and attractions to take in.
A full service Harbour and Marina has ample space for seasonal and visiting boaters to launch, dock, and fuel.

The Kincardine Municipal Airport offers professional flight training as well as breathtaking aerial tours of our area.
Once the warmer weather returns, you can participate with many weekly events located throughout the town. A weekly Farmers Market is held Saturday mornings starting the long weekend in May and continuing until Thanksgiving. Market in the Park is held on Monday’s from Victoria Day to Labour Day at Victoria Park. Cruise Night Classic Car Shows are held downtown on Queen Street on the Friday evening of each long weekend throughout the summer.
