Press Release – Taste of Hearst June 28, 2019


Immediate release

June 28, 2019


Hearst, Ontario – It is with regret that the Town of Hearst has decided to cancel the 7th edition of the Taste of Hearst event, which was scheduled to take place September 6 and 7, 2019.  Although the event was appreciated by participants, administrative changes within the Economic Development Department would make it difficult to put together such an event, thereby a decision was made to cancel the 2019 edition.  The Town of Hearst would like to thank all the volunteers and participants who have contributed to the success of the Taste of Hearst event over the past six years.


On another note, we are pleased to announce that the Agriva Market, which has become a very popular and successful event over the years, will still take place in downtown Hearst on Saturday, September 7th.   Producers and artisans are invited to contact the Hearst Tourism Team at 705-372-2838 or at, to communicate their interest in participating.  More details about the Agriva Market will be available soon.   Please monitor the Groupe AGRIVA Group’s Facebook page.
