This year the Brantford International Villages Festival celebrates 42 years. I still remember my first trip to the villages. An elementary school classmate was selected as a village ambassador, and told me she was dancing at her village. After seeing photos of her very beautiful costume in school I wanted to see what this was all about...
A city that recently celebrated it’s 138th anniversary is bound to have some interesting history and perhaps a few quirks- and that’s another thing that makes Brantford such a great place to live.

I love pizza night with my family - there’s something about a food the whole family loves that makes me happy. If you enjoy a pizza pie from time to time, you may have your favourites, and they are likely some local, family run small businesses.
Anyone travelling around Brantford can’t help but notice the stunning golden fields of daffodils that signal the arrival of spring. They are even more welcome after our long, cold winters! It’s no accident that these flowers are the symbol of spring in Brantford.
