Tweed Visitor Centre at 1 Hershey Drive, Smiths Falls, ON

If you're planning on attending, please RSVP to Caitlin O'Hara by Wednesday, August 22nd, 2018.

The Visitor Centre will bring guests on a journey that boasts larger than life exhibits that educate about the art, culture, science and history surrounding the cannabis plant.

Tweed will open its Visitor Centre doors to the public on Saturday, August 25th, the same day as the Third Annual Shindig hosted onsite. Guests attending the Visitor Centre must be 19 and older.

In its previous life, the Visitors Centre at 1 Hershey Drive attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors a year, making Smiths Falls a tourism destination and driving local economic activity.  We think we're at least half as interesting as chocolate and look forward to welcoming a new generation of visitors.

And, there might even be some chocolate.
