This exciting annual event, now in its’ 8th year, has brought thousands of people to the Walkerville neighbourhood to experience the flare of an area that is both trendy and respectful of its’ heritage.

This year Devonshire Rd will be closed to host approximately 40 artist’s booths, additional to the artists that will be set up inside participating businesses. There will be live entertainment featured both Friday & Saturday from 5pm to 11pm – and a “Mojito Tent” sponsored by Lamb’s Rum.™ Many of Walkerville’s restaurants will be setting up booths inside the tent so you can taste their specialties.
