St. John’s Time

10 Jan 2011

Thousands descend on George Street every year to take in the annual George Street Festival - one of the biggest and friendliest patio parties in the world. This event always precedes the Royal St. John’s Regatta. The Royal St. John’s Regatta is a 1-day event and is the oldest, longest running sporting event in North America! This 1-day festival draws in the vicinity of 60,000 people to Quidi Vidi Lake in the heart of St. John’s to watch the races and to try their luck on various ticket spins, or just sit back and relax and take in the sights. This event is always the first Wednesday in August.

The Buskers Festival brings music to the streets in the downtown area of St. John’s over a 3-day period. Come watch performers that bring out the kid in everyone through juggling, music, comedy and much more.  

The NL Folk Festival is a weekend of music and song and is always held in Bannerman Park in St. John’s. This is a 3-day festival that encourages participation from musicians, storytellers and dancers from NL and away. Come join in the fun and relax in the outdoors. Bring the whole family.
