The County has become the new new Queen Street; where folks once hung in the indie art punk scene they are now trading their grimy bedsits for do-over cottages and studio tours. That is if they are not heading to the Hammer. But Prince Edward County is so much more co-op country living so why not head east.
And if you are looking for a way in County Pop is the door. A one day family friendly festival with a focus on local foods, drinks, artisans and musicians drawn form across Canada as well as a stage for local musicians. All in the historic Crystal Palace in Picton.
The come from away stage features Jill Barber, the Peter Elkas Band, The Durham County Poets and The Layright Boys. The local stage has Norris & Jones, Lori Farrington, Travis Hamel, Nicole Lisa Craig. However in a twist P.E.C. singer/songwriter Grace Bongard is on the Aways stage. Mmmmm - pondering.
Tickets are $30.
