Carrot Fest returns to Bradford West Gwillimbury

Festival takes place August 20 and 21

Bradford West Gwillimbury’s Carrot Fest returns this weekend after being cancelled last year due to COVID.

Folks are invited out to take in live music on the Barrie Street stage, along with busker and BMX shows at the courthouse. On Friday, August 20 from 4:00 to 10:00 p.m., and on Saturday, August 21 from 11:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., the Curtis Goddard Team Stage will feature live music with performances by Who Made Who, Desire, and Mudmen. The stage will be located on Barrie Street between Holland Street and John Street. You can also head to the TD Busker Pitch in the Courthouse parking lot at 57 Holland Street E from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Saturday to see the return of Jagger Sports’ BMX show, performances from Hercinia Arts, and more.

In lieu of the traditional street market, the town is asking that support for past and future vendors be shown by shopping and dining in Bradford. From August 16 to 23, participating locations will have Carrot Fest-related promotions, deals, or coupons.
