Cabbagetown and St. James Town partnered together for joint community festivals on Saturday September 7th. While the St. James Town’s festival was from 1-6 pm, while Cabbagetown continued its tradition of having the festival over both Saturday and Sunday.
As neighbours, residents from Cabbagetown and St. James Town often frequent spend time together- whether it’s for shopping, friendly connections, or to access programs and services. Bringing the communities closer together through a joint festival helps to support these ongoing connections and sharing. This year, joint outreach included a postcard announcing both festivals, and signs that will direct people to both festival locations. St. James Town performers also be performed at the Cabbagetown festival, at an site near Parliament and Wellesley.
