We're working with the North Point Douglas Women's Centre (NPDWC) to produce a full afternoon of free entertainment for families at the Austin Street Festival on Friday, August 25. The stage will be set up at the corner of Austin Street and Lorne Avenue and the performances begin at 1:00 pm.

Ryan Richard will be joined by Morgan Grace for a high energy jigging performance; Gurlz Gurlz Gurlz return with their signature rock sound; The Kaptain brings their dance party to the street; and Studio 393 has a group of young performers ready to take the stage.
