Island Breakfast is a popular event for Brockville locals and visitors alike to enjoy a true 1000 Islands experience: a boat ride and breakfast on one of Brockville’s municipally-owned islands, Refugee Island. We are proud to have been a Finalist in the 2016 Ontario Tourism Awards of Excellence Culinary Event of the Year.
Refugee Island is located on the St. Lawrence River just a short boat ride from St. Lawrence Park in Brockville. It is a beautiful island that is available for boaters to picnic on in the summer season. Proceeds from this annual event will go towards island enhancements with the first project being to build a permanent picnic pavilion on Refugee Island.
Breakfast will be served on the island between 8:00 am and 10:00 am with free shuttle boats running from St. Lawrence Park to take people to the island starting at 7:30 am
