Mayor's BBQ for Old Home Week


Friday, August 10, 2018, 11:30am - 01:00pm

The City of Charlottetown Mayor and Council invite residents and visitors to the Mayor’s Annual BBQ to kick off Old Home Week.

The event will take place on the corner of Fitzroy Street and Great George Street (beside the ATC Centre) on August 10 from 11:30 am tol 1:00 pm.

The Mayor and Councillors will be joined by City staff and Hot 105.5 and Ocean 100 personalities. The event will include free food, entertainment and a small petting zoo for children.

“It’s hard to believe this will be my last year hosting the annual Mayor’s BBQ as a kick off to Old Home Week,” said Mayor Clifford Lee. “We invite everyone to join us in the Capital City as we celebrate one of the city’s most anticipated summer events.”

During the BBQ, Fitzroy Street will be closed to motorists from Great George Street to the Fitzroy Parkade. Motorists will still be able to access the parkade.

The annual BBQ is designed to help launch and show support for Old Home Week, which has a rich history in the city. Islanders and visitors have been enjoying the midway, livestock and agricultural shows and competitions since 1888. Old Home Week includes entertainment for the whole family and runs until August 18.
