Festival Route 11
The Fédération culturelle de l’Île-du-Prince-Édouard (FCIPÉ) presents the third edition of Festival Route 11, taking place at Union Corner Provincial Park from August 3–6. The bilingual folk festival grounds will be transformed once more with large-scale outdoor art installations, inspired by the original work of Karen Gallant, and overseen by artists Kelly Caseley and Patrick Brunet. At the helm of the concerts’ culinary accompaniment are Island chefs Robert Pendergast, Alex Clark and Caleb Gallant. This free-admission Family Day of the festival includes a barbecue, sandcastle building, beach goats, and arts and crafts. The mainstage performers are four-time Grammy-nominated artist Cedric Watson with Bijou Creole,Vishtèn Connexions and The Small Glories. Filling out an already teeming weekend of music, food and art, the festival also brings back Fiddle Camp, offering musical mentorship by professional musicians.
