Lindsay Community Profile

Doing Business in Lindsay

The town of Lindsay offers a delightful variety of experiences including theatre, festivals, historic sites, museums, artisan studios as well as streets lined with locally-owned shops, galleries, and restaurants. The downtown core is known for having one of the widest downtown streets in Ontario, designed to be wide enough to accommodate the turning radius of a four-horse hitch. 

Downtown Lindsay gets its opportunity to shine during several events and festivals throughout the year. You’ll find sidewalk sales, seasonal festivals, and farmers' markets in the summer months, creating a wonderful atmosphere for strolling and browsing. The perfect combination of modern and historical, eclectic and traditional, and above all, a place that cherishes its local community, Lindsay is the business heart of Kawartha Lakes.
