FAQs

Our festival is always held the third weekend of July.

Our festival is FREE! The festival is funded through local business sponsors the Downtown Perth BIA and the Town of Perth and is run entirely by volunteers. We ask for donations at the entrance to the park and your contributions are very much appreciated.

There are no dogs allowed in the park during the festival. By-law No. 3849-3 of the Town of Perth states: “No person shall be permitted to enter Stewart Park with an animal during the Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the Stewart Park Festival” (03/17/09). Because it’s deemed to be a safety issue, to do so could result in a fine of $75.00. Please help us get the word out. Better to hear it from us than from a commissionaire.

The Town of Perth operates a campground at Last Duel Park, a five-minute walk away. All the serviced sites are sold out but green space camping is still available. Registered campers receive a package deal. For more information, call the Visitor Information Centre at 613-812-0020 or call 1-855-326-1947 to reach the Perth Tourism Office.

Additional camping is available at Murphy’s Point Provincial Park, about 19km outside of town.

Yes! Kids and families are more than welcome at Stewart Park Festival. We hold workshops for children, present shows that include children, and this year, we have two extra children’s performances. While the Festival is a family-friendly environment, all the normal precautions about supervising your children apply.
