As part of the Keys to Collingwood Piano Festival we are lighting up the Downtown with a 'Market by Night' event.
Most would associate the Collingwood Farmers' Market with early summer mornings, warm weather, friendly people and fresh local fare. On Civic Holiday weekend as part of the Keys to Collingwood Street Piano Festival there will be an evening market as an extension to the regular morning market.
Presented in addition to the regular morning market on Saturday, August 5th, this evening edition will run from 6 pm to 10 pm in our usual location in the municipal parking lot at the corner of Pine and Second streets. Patrons will have the opportunity to buy dinner, shop your favourite market vendor, and be entertained with performances by The Suitors and The Mike McCarthy Band. There will be balloon twisting and face painting by U-Pick Parties, childrenâ€™s crafts with Magic of Children in the Arts, and an extraordinary show put on by magician Sawyer Bullock.
'Market by Night' is a fun and entertaining way to spend time with family and friends on the long weekend of mid-summer.
Throughout the Civic Holiday weekend from August 4th to 7th you will be able to enjoy live music, during the 'Keys to Collingwood' Piano Festival! We have booked more than 90 hours of entertainment for the street pianos located in the Downtown Collingwood area. We have invited prestigious performers from all over Ontario who have studied at Western University, Humber College, and Wilfrid Laurier. We also welcome to Collingwood a special world renowned Jerry Lee Lewis tribute artist you do not want to miss!! New this year is the Monster Ground Foot Piano located beside Town Hall under the clock tower. Plan to come on downtown and let your dance moves create some musical tunes!
