Brass in the Park

with the Hannaford Street Silver Band.

A special offering from the Festival to all its patrons: a free outdoor family concert on the grounds of Picton’s beautiful Macaulay Heritage Park featuring ten members of the Hannaford Street Silver Band. Bring your own lawnchairs or blankets.

The Hannaford Street Silver Band is the only one of its kind in Canada. Its mission is to honour the traditions of this art form and, at the same time, place it in a contemporary context with a unique Canadian point of view.
