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.
