The famous George Street Festival takes place August 1-7 this year! The 7-day outdoor concert series attracts thousands each summer at the stage on George Street in St. John’s. There are some daytime music events as well, but the main acts play during the evening. While the festival is on, the entire George Street area is barred off and only open to those who pay for a concert ticket, or cover to the street once the concert ends for the evening around 11pm. Being on the street during this time allows you access to all of the many bars, for no extra cover charge.
2019 marks their 35th year and so the celebration takes place with 35 acts including Sam Roberts, City & Colour, Randy Bachman. See the full lineup below!
Check out more details at George Street Live or click here for tickets. 7-day and single event passes are available, along with VIP tickets and after 11pm admission for just $15 after the concerts have ended, since you can still get on the street and enjoy the bars!
