City of Port Colborne press release – The 20th Annual SportsFest returns to Port Colborne Feb. 8-10, 2019. For two decades, the Festival of Sports has provided activities for all ages and interests across the city.

Several local charities benefit too, with proceeds from various events donated to the Port Colborne Fire & Emergency Services Fire Prevention Program, Bless the City, and Port Cares.
