According to Festival Manager Alexandria Stuart, “We’re looking forward to a record number of interactive information booths and demonstrations. This full-day event is always a big crowd pleaser and we’re excited that our partnerships in the community will add so much to this year’s event.”

The Old City Quarter is located just up from the waterfront off of Fitzwilliam Street on Wesley, It can be accessed from exit 18 off of the Parkway Highway. If you’re down town follow Bastion Street up from the waterfront to the sounds of celebration on Wesley Street..
