A Windsor festival is getting $45,000 as part of provincial funding announced on Monday.
The Fork and Cork Festival is the only Windsor-Essex event included in the $15.3-million funding announcement made by Ontario Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport Michael Coteau.

There are 200 festivals and events across the province including in the announcement.
