The Orillia Festival of Banners is a celebration of art and community spirit. Created by local businesswoman Leslie Fournier as a way to draw people into the downtown core and bolster the arts, the Festival produces and displays banners that are designed and hand-painted by the citizens of Orillia and area. These banners illustrate a yearly theme and fly on downtown street lamps from May to October, creating a colourful and unique streetscape and giving residents and tourists alike a warm welcome to the heart of our city.
Each year a different theme is set – 2016’s theme is Past to Present & Tomorrow. Local citizens get their paint brushes ready to create banners that mirror that theme. First they send in their design submissions, which are vetted by the Festival of Banners committee.
