Nicholls Oval – Saturday, August 25, 2012
A beautiful heritage park on the river, under the shade of 80-year-old maple trees is the setting for the second day of the PFF. Long the heart of the festival, this day-long celebration is a place to meet your neighbours, to reconnect with old friends, taste new food, hear new music, and try new skills.
The music, workshops, and festival activities are free, but remember to bring some pocket money for our incredible juried local food, beer, and artisan vendors, who pour their talent into their work and bringbeautiful, clever, and amazing things to our festival.
Would you like to help make the festival even better? Consider volunteering your time – we have plenty of roles for those willing to lend a hand, and the commitment is light – you can sign up here.
The Artisan Village
Over 40 juried vendors will be on hand with hand-crafted artisan goods, everything from fine art to local honey and beautiful jewelry. Visit the Artisan Village page for more information.
The Children’s Activity Village
Open from noon – 5pm, The Children’s Activity Village is a beloved part of the festival, keeping little ones active and happy throughout the day. Crafts, activities, and lots of opportunities to learn and play – and of course, our famous Noise Parade lead by our good friend Washboard Hank! Check out the Children’s Village page for more details.
