It has been an event primarily run by The Merchants of Downtown Grimsby since 2005. This event was so well received by the community that it has become a legacy to Grimsby.

Over the last four years attendance has been steadily growing, and estimated attendance over the Three day event has been 10,000 plus attendees. Residents and visitors of Grimsby are invited to join in the festivities.

The event for 2017 will begin on Thursday, July 13 , with the Farmers Market on Main Street, from 3pm to dusk, where you can not only shop the market, you can also enjoy some great live music. 

Friday, July 14, takes our event to Coronation Park in Downtown Grimsby. From 12pm until 2 pm enjoy Lunch on the Lawn, where the first 150 people to the park can enjoy a free boxed lunch provided by Lincoln Park Retirement Community and Two Sheets to the Wind playing great music. Or bring your own lunch and enjoy an afternoon full of music and sunshine.

Starting at 7 pm, join us at the NEW Southward Park on Mud Street for a night of Food, Music and Fireworks.  Carli's Angels starts off our evening, followed by the U2 International Tribute band, DESIRE.  We cap off the event with a spectacular Fireworks show at approximatley 9:45 pm.  Bring your chairs and blankets and enjoy two great performances and then fireworks!

Saturday July 15 will be a full day of street entertainment, sales, childrens activities, great food and fun.  Main Street will be closed from Ontario Street to Christie Street for our Classic Car Show, Lord of the Wings contest and the Best Slice contest.  Main Street will also be closed from Christie to Patton Street for a street full of vendors selling something for everyone.  Coronation Park will be home to our kids and family area, as well as, hosting bands and live entertainment.  Join us from 10-6.
