Summer in Southside

Summer in Southside is a free family outdoor arts festival that showcases Southside as a destination for culture. Get ready this year for Southside to meet Seaside!

Over the weekend, experience a vibrant carnival atmosphere as Hurst Street is transformed with seaside sights, sounds and smells. Be swept away by nautical encounters from a cod choir, deep sea divers and even some pirates! There is something for everyone – play on wooden street games, dive into the mouth of an enormous whale, enjoy street acrobatics, a marching band with a difference and much, much more!

Our very own back dock will be transformed into a beach with beautiful sculptures – so make Southside your destination of choice this year and enjoy a little bit of seaside familiarity and hilarity right in the heart of the city.
