The village of Thornbury was amalgamated with the Town of The Blue Mountains. The new municipality is located on the shores of Nottawasaga Bay, a few minutes west of the ski hills. The town slogan is Four Seasons of Charming which reflects the popularity of the area. Throughout the year, the Blue Mountains area is host to people who love to ski, hike, swim, and explore. In the shoulder months, it attracts arts and culture tourists from all over Southern Ontario.
There are dozens of small, eclectic shops and boutiques that line the streets and fill the retails spaces of the heritage buildings downtown. Antiques, home decor studios, and artisanal eateries show the creative spirit and energy in the community. The Thornbury marina is busy in the summer months with local and visiting marine traffic.
There are a number of festivals all year in addition to the music and arts scenes in the neighbouring towns. The Apple Harvest Festival is a popular event and the town hosts live musicians and tours of art venues. Winter brings the Olde Fashioned Christmas event with fun and activities for the entire family.
