Antigonish Street Fair is growing this year

Posted at 9:45 am on May 16, 2017 | Filed Under: News

The Antigonish Street Fair is moving ahead with concepts to make this the biggest year yet. At last evening’s Town Council meeting, a presentation was given by Jamie MacDonald to show what stage the group is at, and ask for a larger area of the downtown to be closed to traffic.

The request came because of expansion of the fair, which will now feature a car show located at the Ultramar on Main Street. Mayor Laurie Boucher says the growth of this event is exciting to see:



MacDonald asked council to have a street closure between Hawthorne and Church Street during the fair to accommodate the expected 100 vendors who plan to take part in the event.
