Please note that unlike previous years, there will not be a Pedestrian Sunday Festival in Kensington at the end of June.
Although the roads will not be closed to traffic, this weekend will definitely be another great time to visit and enjoy the market.
Our 2nd of 3 festivals takes place on Sunday July 29th.
Our official road closure format & timeline is as follows:
Pedestrian Sunday Festivals – May 27th, July 29th, and September 30th – 12 to 7pm
Market Sundays – Sundays in August and September - August 5, 12, 19, 26 & September 2, 9,16, 23. 12 – 6pm
Market Sundays are a new format we’re trying out this year. Rather than throw yet another huge party in the street (that can get a little overwhelming for the merchants and residents in the neighbourhood), we’ll simply restrict the entry of motor vehicles into Kensington in order to allow shoppers and strollers to safely spill off the sidewalks and enjoy the market as a pedestrian priority zone. These are not programmed festivals – Market Sundays will be like any other busy and vibrant Sunday but with more room for everyone.
