New Edinburgh Street Fest
Saturday Sept 10

The streets of New Edinburgh will come alive on Saturday with art, dance, music and more!

Eight local artists, including Electric Street Gallery regulars Sara Alex Mullen and Maurice Dionne (see a bit more about Maurice below) will display their work under canopies on Dufferin Street.

Peter Woods and his saxophone will lead off a daylong program of music at MacKay United with a quartet called The Kindness of Jazz, followed by mini-concerts of string and piano. Dancers and musicians will be performing elsewhere in the neighbourhood.

Tours of some of the historic homes will be offered, and historians will tell the story of New Edinburgh at St. Bartholomew’s Church.

Barbecue, free to ticketholders, will be provided our local Metro supermarket! Beverages, hard and soft, will be available.

The event is a benefit for the Inuuqatigiit Centre for Inuit Children, Youth and Families in Vanier. Tickets at $30 are available online at or at Books on Beechwood (cash only). The price includes an informative 60 page booklet describing many events in the history of the neighbourhood, including the history of the building which houses Electric Street Gallery!

Maurice Dionne produces precise ink-and-watercolour renditions of local scenes with a special charm that’s hard to describe but easy to see! Owning a unique rendition of a local landmark is an excellent way to celebrate our neighbourhood. We wish Maurice Dionne every success at Street Fest with his extensive collection of local streetscapes!

Immediately following Street Fest, on Saturday evening, we’ll be hanging a special exhibit of Maurice’s works. So if you have to miss Street Fest, come visit us in the next few weeks and check out Maurice’s solo show, “Local Colours “.

Of course we’re especially fond of his rendition of the gallery, which you can see just below!
