We love the many events the town puts on. In this complex and sometimes scary world, events like Uncommon, Open Air and Cars Gone Crazy activate our streets allowing visitors and residents alike to safely engage and enjoy.
They all make Amherstburg even better.
From our inception we said that we wanted to become a popular 'third place’ for our community.
First Place is where one lives … second place is where one works … and a third place is where people go to gather, to exchange ideas, to meet others and where it’s safe and friendly. At River Bookshop we believe we have done that with our inviting bookshop design and our friendly knowledgeable staff.
While we, at the River Bookshop, love our country, we are not blind to the wrongs done to the Indigenous community in it's name so this Canada Day we are choosing to highlight Canadian authors with a special focus on those Indigenous authors who bring so much wonderful and thought-provoking literature into the book world.
IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN!
Starting in mid-June *fingers crossed* it’s Open Air Amherstburg - a time to roam the streets of beautiful downtown Amherstburg visiting the shops, enjoying the patios for a drink or a bite of fantastic food and strolling through our stunning riverfront.
