A sign just outside of the town would suggest that Smithville is known as "The Hub of the Niagara Peninsula," and some marketers would have you suggest the town is "The Chicken Capital of Canada."
Although small, it is quite well-known for the annual festival known as Poultry Fest, held annually in June. Smithville continues to hold an agricultural fair on the Labour Day weekend every year. There are lots of agricultural competitions, demolition derbies and entertainment for all ages.
Smithville also has a Farmers Market that runs every Saturday morning in the summer. The market features a carefully selected variety of vendors showcasing local produce, preserves, meat, honey, flowers and baking.
Parks in Smithville include the Smithville Conservation Area, and the Smithville Fairgrounds and West Lincoln Arena. The "Murgatroyd Parkette" is at the corner of Griffin and St. Catharines Street. It has trees and benches, and features the town clock (from the original post offices) mounted on a pedestal.
Smithville is the largest urban center of the Township West Lincoln and is the principle area of growth in the industrial, commercial and residential sectors.
