For a loonie, you and your friends can enter the Scream Tent and see what horrible sounds and weird faces you can make. We’ll take your picture and show it to you! For a toonie, you can have your scream picture printed!

Make ribbons for your favourite Jouster or a sign to cheer them on at the kids craft table.

Try out our version of Jousting!
Try on a horse and use your lance to catch a Crown!

Teddy Bear Picnic

Do you have a favourite Teddy Bear? Is (s)he dressed like a pilot? A nurse? You? Would you like to bring your buddy along for a parade of the Teddies? Then... Meet at the Summerfest Tent at 1:15 on Sunday, June 29 If you and your Teddy want to ride your bike or ride in a wagon, decorate it with ribbons, with streamers, with balloons – anything you can think of!

Bring a picnic lunch or plan to buy your lunch from one of the vendors. Bring a blanket to put on the ground to eat your snacks. If your Teddy gets a boo boo, you can visit the First Aid station. We hope that no Teddy will need to ride in the Ambulance! Bring your Mom and Dad, your Nana and Papa because all of the adults will be asked to vote on their favourite Teddy. Don’t forget to check out the Teddy Bear auction!

Are you an artist? You (by yourself or with a friend or two) will be given a sidewalk area to use for your Sidewalk Art Creation.

Any and all family friendly topics welcome!

Open Market Vendors Information

In 2014 the area under the tent will again be set up for vendors to sell their products. Last year we had a number of suggestions from the vendors that we have tried to implement this year.

We have lots of things happening around the tent on Saturday and Sunday and we hope that this will encourage customers to stop and shop not only on Friday and Saturday but Sunday as well.

Registration Form: Please download the form and fill it out and email it to ajoybott@gmail.com.

We ask that you describe your products so that we don’t inadvertently put 2 vendors with the same products side by side.

You will notice at the bottom of the registration form that you can choose to use your site for Friday evening, Saturday and/or Sunday. The cost remains $25 per block regardless of the number of days you want to use the site. We plan to outline the area of each block and ask that you remain inside that area in order to be respectful of your neighbours. The tables will be 5’x2.5’ as they were last year. If you wish a larger table, you may certainly choose to bring your own. Power can be provided if necessary but we need advance notice.

We are trying but have not yet managed to lock down security for overnight in the tent.
