Stewart Park

Frequently Asked Questions

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 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.

While we love dogs just as much as you do, they aren’t permitted in the park during the festival (it’s a Town of Perth bylaw). Please leave your furry friends at home.  Read more here.

When you gotta go, you gotta go! The Town of Perth provides porta-potties at the eastern edge of the park. There are public washrooms on the south side of Town Hall and at the Crystal Palace.

We have 2 water stations in Stewart Park. Fill up your water bottles, stay you  hydrated and help eliminate plastic water bottles! The Town of Perth will be providing filtered water through a new system. We’re so appreciative of their continued support to its community and for all they do!

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.

Help us keep the park clean and green by using our special events recycling containers. We’ll have bins for paper, plastic bottles and metal cans and please use the garbage cans for non-recyclables.

Please be advised that the Tay River is not a designated swimming area and is not supervised. There are many dangers, from poor footing and fast-flowing water to rocks. Please be aware of the risks and supervise your children. Play safe!

Wave to Al Torrance and his tireless gang of sound technicians. They are on the run for the entire festival so we can sit back and let the sweet music wash over us.

Look for our festival volunteers in their Stewart Park t-shirts. Ask a question, or just say thanks
