About Zorra

“Located in the Northwest corner of Oxford County and intersected by the Thames River, is Zorra Township (population 8100).  Within the township are several communities including Thamesford, Embro, Kintore, Lakeside and Harrington.  Several events are held in Zorra including Thamesford’s Calithumpian Days, Embro Tractor Pull and Wienerfest Home County Festival. Camping, natural areas, farmers markets, fishing, paddling, golf and accommodations are enjoyed throughout the Township.  Rolling hills make the area popular for road cyclists and motorcyclists.  Pitch your tent or park your RV at Wildwood Conservation Area or Happy Hills Resort.  Cast a line into the Thames River or explore the waterway with a paddle.  Explore, slow down and get to know the locals.” – Tourism Oxford
