Some of Sudbury’s biggest summer events are being held at Bell Park this year, including Feast Fest, Sudbury Poutine Fest, and Budweiser New Music Fest, which are now accepting artist and vendor application submissions for 2018.
Feast Fest (June 15-17) and Sudbury Poutine Fest (Aug 24-26) are both in their second year (2018), which organizers promise a much bigger overall festival program for each, including more food options, vendors, and family-friendly programming. Each of these festivals will offer patrons an array of arts, crafts, and live music, a kids-zone, beverage sampling, and of course food & beverage options for all tastes.
Both food festivals will offer daily admission for only $2 (children 12 and under free). Evening concerts will be 19+ after 8 pm, which details of are yet to be announced. In 2017 these Sudbury food festivals collectively included headliner performances by Honeymoon Suite, Jojo Mason, and Bobby Wills.
