There will be a children’s activity zone by Zippy Zoom, crafters selling their wares and neighbourhood walking tours led by guides familiar with the rich history of the area throughout the historic Facer District. New this year are the children’s chalk mural sidewalk drawing and the Italian Cultural Entertainment Area.

Proceeds from the festival will be reinvested into the “Beautify the Facer District” initiative.  Scenes from last year below.  For more information visit the website HERE.
