The Guide will be distributed to Dufferin County households and nearby communities, reaching out to residents and visitors travelling 40 kilometres or beyond to explore Dufferin County.

The Explore Dufferin Guide is a one-stop shop offering information on local businesses, events, suggested itineraries and much more. It will showcase events scheduled from May 2024 to April 2025.
