Join the Fall Flavours Festival fun Oct 1 & 2 with Street Feast, an epic two-day block party featuring special food creations and quirkiness from some of the city’s favourite local hangouts, including Craft Beer Corner, HopYard, The Arts Hotel, Trailside Music Hall, Salvador Dali Cafe, Dooly’s Charlottetown, and the Charlottetown Beer Garden. Kent Street will be closed off + licensed, and will come alive with the sights and sounds and smells of the grown-up birthday party of our collective dreams (Covid-style) – featuring street food & local drinks, live music (feat. the Love Junkies, Vince the Messenger, Taylor Swift Tribute Band, Kierrah, Logan Richard, and more!), comedy & drag shows, party games, dance performances, and more. Hula-hooping competition, anyone?!
Scroll down for the full entertainment line-up, street food menus, and FAQs.
Free to attend but patrons will be given priority. Seating is first-come, first-serve with limited capacity – all are welcome. Entrance on Great George Street, Exit on Prince Street. Covid-19 health & safety protocols will be in effect with cohorts. Masks mandatory. The event will go ahead rain or shine – we are taking steps to make sure no matter what you’ll be dry and cozy!

No. While it is recommended, it is not required. People will have to be physically distanced, wear masks unless eating/drinking, and remain in their cohorts. We’ll also have sanatizing stations throughout the street.

Yep! You can order from the satellite bars and food stations.
Is there table service?
No. Please go up to a satellite bar, food station, or inside a restaurant to order.
