This calendar is reserved for non-commercial community events. What does that mean? Your event must be free or of nominal cost, available to anyone (although adult-only events are fine), and not for profit (but we do make exception for artists showing their work who would profit from any sales made and musicians hosting small-scale concerts). Not sure if your event fits? Drop us a line at [email protected] to check, or go ahead and submit anyhow – submissions are moderated and we’ll approve yours if it fits our criteria. Thanks for helping make Huntsville a vibrant community!

31st annual Project Porchlight Food Drive in support of the Salvation Army Food Bank
December 4 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Mark your calendars, as The Huntsville / Lake of Bays Fire Department is ramping up for the 31st annual Project Porchlight Food Drive, taking place this year on Wednesday December 4, starting at 6:00 p.m.
Project Porchlight is an evening when the flashing lights and the wail of sirens is something to feel good about, as fire trucks, ambulances and police cruisers go door-to-door collecting healthy non-perishable food donations.
Please leave your porch light on and firefighters along with Santa and other community volunteers will be by to pick up your food donation.
The collected food is distributed by the Salvation Army to those in need within the community throughout the year.
Bags to pack your food donations in are available at various food stores throughout our communities.
You can also drop food donations off at the following locations:
- Huntsville Fire Hall Station #1, 1 Payne Drive
- The Salvation Army in Huntsville, 4 Mary Street E.
- Port Sydney Fire Hall, 387 South Mary Lake Road
- Lake of Bays Fire Halls, 1007 Limberlost Rd., 1230 Fox Point Rd. and 12 University St., Baysville.
