Festival Route 11

Bilingual folk festival at Union Corner Park—Aug 3 to 6

Cedric Watson with Bijou Creole

Festival Route 11 returns for the third edition at Union Corner Provincial Park from August 3–6. The bilingual folk festival offers a multi-sensory experience, combining music, culinary arts and visual art installations.

This year’s concert headliners include four-time Grammy-nominated artist Cedric Watson with Bijou Creole, traditional Quebec music group De Temps Antan, and New Brunswick singer-songwriter Paul Hébert. Rounding out the lineup are Catherine MacLellan, The Small Glories, Shane Pendergast, Bruce Molsky, and a special performance of Vishtèn Connexions. Here We Go Barndance returns, featuring Richard Wood, Megan Bergeron and Nick van Ouwerkerk.

The festival grounds will be transformed once more with large-scale outdoor art installations inspired by the original work of Karen Gallant, 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. 

Presented by the Fédération culturelle de l’Île-du-Prince-Édouard, Festival 11 will also present the Fiddle Camp and the free-admission Family Day again this year.
