Live music is exceptional at the Shelter Valley Folk Festival! The Park Theatre and Performing Arts Centre, Capitol Theatre, Westben Concerts at the Barn and the Brighton Barn Theatre all have an exciting summer line up of musical and theatrical performances!

If you love to be on the waterfront be sure not miss the Cobourg Sandcastle Festival, Lakeside Antique & Classic Car Show, Northumberland Ribfest, Trash ‘N Treasures, Harwood Waterfront Festival or the Hastings Waterfront Festival.

Fishing is popular around Northumberland and there is no shortage of exciting fishing events. Fish Northumberland’s lakes, rivers and streams, license free during Ontario Family Fishing Week. Another great family fishing experience is the Bob Izumi’s Kids, Cops & Canadian Tire Fishing Days in Port Hope. For the more serious anglers the Great Ontario Salmon Derby takes place along Lake Ontario and has charters from Port Hope.

Every Saturday you can taste the county's fresh fair at Farmers' Markets in Cobourg, Port Hope, Hastings, Campbellford and Brighton.
