Your one-stop spot! You can find local tourism brochures, maps of the Town of Perth and answers to your questions. We’re also the place to go for a lost child, lost item or emergency. You can buy Stewart Park Festival t-shirts, tanks, hats, beer mugs, and water bottles as well as Bike/ Canoe Tour tickets and After Hours bracelets. You can make a donation here, too (all donations over $25 get a tax receipt). We have a survey you can fill out, or you can just let us know what you think. The tent is open for the entire weekend.
Lake 88 CD Tent
Did you love a performer so much you wanted to take them home? Well, you can have a little piece of the magic. The CD Tent is also where performers stop by to sign autographs. Autograph opportunities will be announced daily.

The stop you never want to make but you are always glad when they are there. St John’s Ambulance provides emergency and first aid service from the backstage area.

While the festival is an outdoor event, provincial regulations do not allow smoking in the park or near food services during the festival.
