Heritage Celebration Tickets Now Available!

The Sharon Temple Historic Site and Museum is proud to announce that the 2nd Annual Heritage Celebration will be held on Thursday, June 8th, 2017. This year, we have moved the festivities to June to celebrate David Willson’s 239th birthday!

Heritage Celebration will be one of many 2017 events in East Gwillimbury that will celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary, but it will be the only event commemorating the purchase of the Temple by the York Pioneer Historical Society in 1917. With such a rich historical year, Heritage Celebration promises to be a night to remember: delightful hors d’oeuvres, historic tours, wine and craft beer, culminating in a stunning musical performance in the one of a kind Sharon Temple. We have added a special element to our 2017 event, a surprise that will surely leave you breathless!

There are only 200 tickets available so purchase yours early to avoid disappointment! Thank you for your continued support of our beautiful historic site, and we hope to see you at our 2nd Annual Heritage Celebration!
