As autumn brings new colour to the forest and the summer heat makes way for cooler nights cozied up by the fire, we invite you to celebrate with us at the 2023 Saulaine's Rudens Svētki // Fall Festival. Commemorating the 75th Anniversary of St. John's Lutheran Latvian Church and over 7 decades of community and land stewardship on this beautiful property along the Nottawasaga River, we welcome ALL friends of the land to partake in a weekend full of nature, art and culture.
