We've been super busy bees in the office trying to get all the final details for the festival sorted out.
Although we are new to the festival circuit, we're definitely growing each day with all your feedback.

Once you get your ticket you will be able to vote for the Peoples' Choice Award.
I'm looking forward to staying up all night afterwards as Saturday marks the 36th Annual Cabbagetown Festival of the Arts.
We have the best of the best this year with street vendors, one-of-a-kind artisans and more music and performances than our stage can handle.
With buskers, flash mobs, food vendors, a mobile zoo and a fully stacked Kidz Korner, this year will definitely be one to remember.
A full listing of main stage entertainment will be posted tomorrow on cabbagetownfestival.blogspot.ca September 1st so look out for it BUT if you can't wait, the main stage schedule can be found in the Parliament St. Newspaper.
