Relocating to Clarington Ontario
Clarington is known for its festivals, but then again, a lot of greater Toronto towns are known for festivals. We have more festivals in this area than just about anywhere else in Canada. Clarington is home to five Christmas parades, more than any other town municipality in Canada. Clarington has festivals year-round and was named municipality of the year by Festivals and Events Ontario.
Clarington is also home to the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, a major attraction featuring a multitrack facility, 10 Turn Rd. course, half-mile paved oval, a 2.4 km advanced driver and race driver training facility and a 1.4 km Cart Track. It's been the host of the Canadian Grand Prix of Formula 1 before the event was moved to Montréal in the 70s. It's also the location of three major music festivals (shocker) held between 1970 and 1980.
Because Clarington and Bowmanville are very similar, it's a great way to explore a small town or two. The largest is actually Bowmanville at just under 40,000 residents but both are great places to visit for awesome restaurants, breweries, and shopping. While you're out exploring the town, hunt for street art. There's public art everywhere you go with gorgeous murals and sculptures. You'll find unique works of art scattered through other neighboring towns and communities as well.
Visit one of the oldest mills in Ontario. Tyrone Mills was built in 1846 and features a traditional water-powered mill, one of the oldest in the province.
