A Musical Celebration for our Staff and Home Town Community
Tweed is pleased to announce the date for the third annual Shindig, the largest community and music event in Smiths Falls. The date: August 25, 2018. Block your calendars and tell your friends!
When we started this amazing journey as a cannabis company we needed a home base. Thankfully, the Town of Smiths Falls was willing to take a chance on us and welcomed Tweed with open arms. This wasn’t an easy decision back then and the Shindig is our way of thanking our community, while giving our staff and their families a celebration for all the hard work they are pouring into recreational cannabis readiness.
Since we opened up shop in Smiths Falls, we’ve been proud to contribute to our community in a ton of different ways including our charity golf tournament which raised over $100,000 in its first year for the local food back, community theater, and the United Way. This is in addition to the amazing contributions of our team members through events like our Thanksgiv’r and Canopy Cares at Christmas, through which we have donated almost 10,000 pounds of food and more than a truckload of toys to help out around the holidays. Not to mention our Tweed Days of Caring working with the United Way where team members go hands on to help community organizations complete important projects.
Suffice it to say we love our home-town and believe that we have an important role to play as a member of the community. And that’s where the Shindig comes in: our tradition of saying thank you with a community focused event in the middle of our front lawn every summer that attracts visitors and artists from across the country.
Party in the front, business in the back. It’s the opposite of the famed Canadian mullet. We’ve had award-winning headliners like Mother Mother, Classified, and Joel Plaskett, in addition to some amazing local bands as well as much-loved artisans and vendors. Every year the Shindig grows, and every year it gets more exciting with something to offer everyone in attendance. This year’s Shindig will kick off at 1 PM with beloved local talent, food and market vendors. Rising Canadian artists, The Sorority and Iskwé will hit the stage in the evening, with other great artists making appearances throughout the night, until it comes to a close at 11 PM.
We’re also running a free shuttle service between Ottawa, Kanata, Carleton Place and Smiths Falls to make sure that Shindig is accessible for everyone. Tickets for the event are $15 for adults and free for children, with all proceeds going to local charities. We will also be giving away 1000 free tickets to residents of Smiths Falls.
We can’t wait to see you on the lawn.
