Tillsonburg TurtleFest will Return in 2019!

June 14 - 15 - 16, 2019

Our festival is based on a legendary promise by Tillsonburg's founder, George Tillson, to return one day as a turtle to see how his town was prospering. Several years after his passing, a giant turtle was found on the banks of the Otter Creek near the Tillson homestead. Remembering his promise, Tillsonburg citizens brought the turtle to the downtown area & everyone was invited to come and see “George” and let him know how the town had prospered. It’s been over a hundred & thirty years since this event and Tillsonburg is still growing. We’re inviting you to visit on this special occasion & see how Tillsonburg continues to prosper!
