Meaford Dragons Going Virtual

The Meaford Chamber of Commerce is thrilled to present the 12th annual production of the Meaford Dragons.

Due to COVID-19, the event will look a little different this year, but we are dedicated to make it happen to help support local entrepreneurs and grow our local economy,” said the Chamber.

You can take in this year’s event virtually via Vimeo on Demand on December 2 at 7 p.m. This year’s event promises to be bigger and even more exciting than ever and you can watch on your TV, computer, or mobile device with iOS, Android, Apple TV, Roku, or Chromecast.

Modelled after the popular CBC television program, Meaford Dragons is a unique spinoff event that has kick-started more than 55 start-ups and expansions, injecting over $230,000 in cash and prizes into our local economy since 2009.

Meaford Dragons follows the same format as previous years with the same amazing host, comedian, actor, and writer Andrew Chapman, and this year you can watch from home on your favourite device, along with your social or family bubble, for the low price of $25.

The Dragon Slayers have made their pitches and the Dragons have made their choices, but no one knows how it will end until you watch on December 2. Be sure to tune in at 7 p.m. sharp to be the first to know the results, and to place your vote for your favourite Slayer to help decide who will win the $500 Rotary Club Audience Choice Award.

More information on the event can be found on the Meaford Chamber of Commerce website at https://meafordchamber.ca/meaford-dragons/ and tickets can be purchased at https://vimeo.com/ondemand/meaforddragons. Tune in and help support our local entrepreneurs. We would especially like to thank all our amazing sponsors for helping make this virtual event possible.
