Glen­garry County is a unique area that cel­e­brates its rich Celtic her­itage through nu­mer­ous fes­ti­vals, events, halls of fame and land­marks. Come see why Glen­garry has earned the dis­tinc­tion of be­ing On­tario’s Celtic Heart­land, and dis­cover the Glen­garry Mys­tique. On­tario’s first set­tle­ment and Canada’s first county, Glen­garry is lo­cated be­tween the Ot­tawa and St. Lawrence Rivers and is an hour’s drive from Ot­tawa, Mon­tréal and New York State.

Pride in our farm­ing, Scot­tish and French Cana­dian roots are high­lighted in the wide range of fes­tiv­i­ties held in our towns, vil­lages and ham­lets.

Glen­garry is also home to a vi­brant fran­co­phone com­mu­nity. The Glen­garry High­land Games in Maxville is one of the largest Gath­er­ing of the Clans in the world. The Wil­liamstown Fair is the old­est con­tin­u­ous coun­try fair in the coun­try and is one of the best agri­cul­tural ex­hi­bi­tions in Canada. See what our many lo­cal busi­nesses and farm­ers’ mar­kets have to of­fer.

Glen­garry is home to a wide range of re­tail­ers and restau­rants. Re­lax in one of our many parks. Get in touch with na­ture at a con­ser­va­tion area or saunter along a recre­ational trail.
