Soup's On 2025

The Alzheimer Society Huron Perth is excited to be celebrating our 30th year of Soup's On, January's premier event! This all-ages signature event presented by Hyde Construction, will be on Saturday, January 11, 2025, at the Stratford Rotary Complex. Attendees are encouraged to bring your own spoon to reduce the environmental impact of the event.

Soup’s On features delicious soups from a variety of local soup vendors, live music, a silent auction, and a kid’s corner with games and face painting. Admission is by donation at the door and ‘soupons’, the official currency of Soup’s On are available to purchase at a cost of 5 for $5 and are then used to obtain soup samples.

At the heart of this event is the generosity of people in our community who support us year after year. We believe it really does take a collective, community effort to support people living with dementia. The funds raised at Soup's On help to ensure that we are able to continue offering group and individual support, education programs, and a number of social recreation programs - all at either no cost or minimal cost to our clients, those who need your help.
