Gear up and get ready for the 8th Annual Smiths Falls Trainfest, August 26th and 27th at the Railway Museum. This action-packed, fun-filled weekend will feature train rides, kids activities, horse-and-wagon tours and so much more fun for the whole family!
Check out the model trains and meet many great vendors and exhibitors from all over Ontario and Quebec! Join in on our free whistle-making workshop. Children’s activities will take place in the Kids’ Tent with railway games, crafts, face painting, and much more!
This year, the Museum will be offering train rides from 10:30 am to 3 pm both days. Hop aboard our 1940s caboose for a ride on the rails. Best of all, all activities are included in event admission.
To celebrate Canada 150, we will be giving a nod to our country’s railway heritage as we have a special move of our steam locomotive at 1 pm, followed by a birthday celebration!
New this year, the museum is hosting Trainfest – Afterdark. Beginning at 7 pm in the Rideau Canal Visitor’s Centre theatre, join us for an evening of music and storytelling – with a railway theme. Admission is free with your Trainfest bracelet or tickets can be purchased in advance through our website.
Trainfest runs Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm. Admission each day is $10 for adults, seniors and students are $8, children 4 to 13 years old are $5, and children 3 and under are free.
