Gord Downie Piano
An added feature this year at the Crystal Palace on the Perth Brewery Patio, is the Gord Downie Piano. It was decorated to commemorate the musical stylings of Tragically Hip frontman Gord Downie. Bring your camera and take a picture with the piano or sit and play between musical performances.
Mackenzie & Marr Guitar Booth
Be sure to check out the Mackenzie & Marr Guitar tent set up near the Wendy Laut River Stage. There you’ll find some great guitars for you to try out. All MacKenzie & Marr guitars are crafted from solid premium woods. Stewart Park Festival thanks the good folks at MacKenzie & Marr for donating a guitar to the festival. The guitar will be at our wrap-up party and will be given away to a lucky volunteer. https://www.macmarr.com/
