The Bruce Peninsula is renowned for it's diversity of wild growing native orchids. An astonishing 44 orchid species occur on "The Bruce", ranging from abundant Yellow Lady Slippers to the endangered Easter prairie White-Fringed orchid. For a small area, the Bruce Peninsula has one of the greatest varieties of orchids in North America.
 
The Bruce Peninsula Orchid Festival is your chance to discover native orchids and wild flowers, to learn from experienced naturalists, and to be inspired by the rugged scenery of the area. Festival activities include guided hikes, orchid tours, orchid photography workshops and more.
 
Highlights of the Festival are the Friday evening presentation by visiting photographer - Jim Hixon and the Saturday evening Wine & Cheese and feature presentation by renowned naturalist - Michael Runtz.
 
The Park Visitor Centre, just off Highway 6 on Chi-Sintub'dik Road, is the festival headquarters. Here you can register for the festival, pick up a schedule of events and ask questions. Activities, such as the feature presentation, will be held at this location. Many of the field activities begin at these headquarters, but will visit locations in and around Bruce Peninsula National Park. Transportation between the headquarters and field sites is by private car-pooling.
