Mixed Broom Ball Tournament- January

Once a year, every winter, mixed teams from Ignace and surrounding communities come together for a fun packed weekend playing broomball. The tournament is held at the Ignace Recreation Complex. In addition to the cash prizes for the top three (3) competing teams, there is a draw at the end of the tournament where more prizes can be won. The event is culminated with a party at one of the local restaurants in town.

Ignace Slo Pitch Tournament- June

Every year, on the third weekend of June, mixed teams from near and far journey to Ignace to play in the Ignace Slo Pitch Tournament. Monies collected go towards cash prizes for all participating teams. This tournament is on the rise, getting bigger and better with each passing year. Contact the Recreation Department at 807-934-2202 to register your team!

Kids Fest- July

Every year, Ignace hosts a fun filled festival just for kids with exciting games, mouth watering food, activity booths and live music.  Kids Fest is done in partnership with the Early On Centre and the Recreation Department and focuses on activities for children of all ages.

Teddy Bear Picnic- September

We all know and love the tradition of the Teddy Bear Picnic! Here in Ignace we hold our annual Teddy Bear picnic in September on Grandparents Day. Bring your favourite teddy bear, your grand parents and a picnic lunch. Enjoy the picnic and play areas at the Tourism Information Centre where games and music are provided by the Recreation Department.

Christmas Parade- December

Get out your lights and that creative Christmas spark! The community comes together every Christmas season to decorate floats and show off their community Christmas spirit. Through a collaborative effort by the Ignace Recreation Committee, local businesses, community groups and families, a theme is picked and floats are made for the parade. A free public skate and hot chocolate usually follow at the Ignace Recreation Complex. This is definitely a great night for building memories.
