Blog Guelph: Communityfests


Neighbourhood group festivals are a fine way of creating a closeknit community. We had our annual Orange Skies Festival on the weekend. Dozens of folks from our street and environs came together to share a seasonal feast, conversation and talent.

Besides being entertained by the delightful "Girls With Chairs" our fancy was tickled by magician Benjamin Caesar. Josh McGee, Aimee Charbonneau and Tannis Slimmon offered their outstanding musical talent in an intimate 'round the picnic table' setting.

Upcoming fests as reported by our darling paper, the Guelph Tribune include: Grange Hill East Summerfest 2006, September 3, O'Connor Lane Park from 3 pm to dusk; Parkwood Gardens Neighbourhood hosts the 10th Annual Summer BBQ at Springdale Park, September 4, 11:30 tot 2:30; Kortright Hills Community Country Hoedown, September 9, 11am to 3:30pm at Kortright Hill School and Picnic in Exhibition Park takes place on September 17, from 1 to 5.
