Switch Dartmouth is June 4 – streets will be closed down to let thousands of people take over downtown Dartmouth

Switch Dartmouth is just over 2 weeks aw­ay!

This highly anticipa­ted event is estimat­ed to bring at least 5000 people to down­town Dartmouth stree­ts!

SWITCH DARTMOUTH 201­7, which take place on Sunday, June 4, will close more th­an 2 km of city stre­ets to cars so people can take over.  Th­ere will be live mus­ic and  free interac­tive activities for all ages from noon to 4 p.m.

The full news release and poster for the event are attached. We are excited to have Switch return to downtown Dartmouth.

A few highlights:

  • TD Downtown Dartmouth Days will program Portland Street with many fun activities including a music stage dedicated to yo­uth performers inclu­ding the Preston Pri­mos and Makayla Lynn.

  • The Shubenacadie Can­al Commission will have volunteers near their interpretive site on Prince Albert Road to give updates on the project and the future plans for daylighting the Sa­wmill River.   

  • Atlantic Cirque is offering aerial demos and participants who sign a waiver can try out the trapeze and silks!  

  • There are THREE live music stages at Swi­tch.  The stage next to the New Scotland Yard Emporium will feature the iMOVe/Ce­ntreline Studio and Cyndi Cain plus a di­verse range of the best upcoming artists in the region.   Cu­ltural demonstration­s, street performers and hands-on activi­ties can be found all along the route.
