Mon Jul 1 – No morning draw on Canada Day

Please note that there will be no Morning Draw on Canada Day as all of the outdoor amplified locations are traditionally pre-programmed. Outdoor acoustic locations available on Canada day are limited to Boatlift lane and Kid’s Market Courtyard. They will be BAYOR (Busk at your own risk) and available on a first come first serve basis – sign up in the usual location. There will be no busking at indoor locations available.
