Meet Downtown Carleton Place on the Mississippi! The much-anticipated Bridge St. Summer Fest (previously Bridge Street Bazaar) will be your new summer favourite.
Boutique shopping, maker and vendor markets, Beatles Tribute Band and Redneck Limousine, Hometown Hearts Kidz Zone, Carleton Place Farmers’ Market, Wally’s Classic: National Log Lifting Competition, Scarlet Black & Lucy Loop, Hula Fun Zone, and Stalwart Beer Garden will be featured.
The event takes place on Saturday, Aug. 5 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is free to the public. The Stalwart beer garden will be 19+ only and will begin at 11 a.m.
“Bridge St. Summer Fest is the flagship event of Downtown Carleton Place,” notes the organization. “This event promotes our vibrant downtown, its incredible merchants and our fabulous town as a whole.”
The entire downtown section of Bridge Street will be shut off to vehicular traffic, making way for a pedestrian-friendly area. There is a full schedule of various activities and attractions – including some of Carleton Place’s finest musicians, mascots, and entertainers.
