Bancroft, sitting atop subsoil rich in minerals and semi-precious stones, is aptly named the Mineral Capital of Canada.

Enjoy live theatre at the Village Playhouse or spend a musical evening at the outdoor York River Band Shell. Bicycle, hike, horseback ride, ski, snowmobile or dogsled on the Hastings Heritage Trail. Don't miss the North Hastings Heritage Museum with its collection of Victorian and pioneer items. Fine art lovers will appreciate the Bancroft Art Gallery showcasing regional artists.
