CORE Awards in Downtown Kingston

Tell us your story

We are so fortunate to have a vibrant, historically rich and modern downtown core in the city of Kingston. Although these things are important, it's really about the people and businesses that interact with our visitors that can make the experience something to remember. Have you encountered a business or person in our community who has been a source of inspiration or has significantly enhanced the downtown Kingston experience? If so, we invite you to nominate them by sharing their story with us. The CORE Awards (Celebrating Outstanding Recognition of Excellence) gives all of us a chance to highlight those individuals or businesses that are making a difference.
