Plus there will be a Potato sack race, three-legged race, corn maze fun, and great live music with Alan Sonier. Come play in our field and check out the awesome hay bale creations.
The main stage of Confederation Centre will come alive with a dazzling array of world class music, dance, incredible performance art and visual art from around the globe. Together with local household names, internationally recognized artists will perform in this new festival dedicated to human connections and cultural dialogue.
This event offers an opportunity of reflection about a world in constant change. In seeming contrasts, the ageless beauty of Prince Edward Island inspires its visitors with a sense of belonging and community. Island artists are extending a warm welcome to the cultural pilgrims and ambassadors from all around the globe and together they will share their art with us- the audience. By learning and appreciating different manifestations of human intellectual achievement we do realize we are more alike than we are different. This September, Prince Edward Island becomes a truly global village.
