You will have direct exposure to over 20,000 visitors attending this free event over three days, as well as inclusion in advertising and promotion leading up to the Festival. Typically, over half of these visitors come from the Town of Perth and the local area, but many come from all over Ontario, Quebec and around the country and represent a highly diverse demographic. Perth is also a major tourist destination for thousands of American and International visitors.
Located behind Town Hall, Stewart Park is Perth’s most distinctive landmark and home to the festival. Donated to the Town of Perth in 1947 by Mrs. Stewart, in memory of her husband, a condition of the gift was that admission could never be charged for entrance to the park or for any event held in the park. With its massive trees, meandering Tay River and picturesque spaces, it is the perfect location for the community to gather for a Festival!
Musical performances will be held at both stages all three days and evenings. Juno Award winning Artistic Director, James Keelaghan, is lining up stellar musical acts featuring the very best in Canadian talent and from around the world.
In the evening, guests are invited to visit our After Hours venues, where they can catch many main stage performers up-close and personal. After Hours venues include many of the incredible restaurants in downtown Perth, nearby sponsors with available space, as well as at the iconic Crystal Palace where a licensed patio makes for an intimate and fun-filled night.
Our food vendors and artisan’s market features mostly-local vendors, and is located just outside the park. With a mix of artisans and local Perth BIA businesses, festival guests can grab a snack and shop around in support of the community.
