Cornwall ON – The Sounds of Buskerville took Cornwall by storm last year. Well maybe not storm, but definitely a strong Summer breeze which should be accompanying the musical event of the season here in Cornwall; at least for some of the many local performers!
Pitt Street between First Street and Third Street will be closed to vehicle traffic Saturday for the 2nd Annual Sounds of Buskerville Festival (10:30 am to 5:30 pm). Traffic will detour at Pitt and Third Streets to Augustus Street.
Received today from its organizer:
Start saving your change. This Saturday July 30th is The 2nd Annual Sounds of Buskerville.
A day where the streets of Cornwall come alive . Enjoy a day filled with
Music, Art, food , fun, and so much more.
The recipient of the proceeds from this year will go to the O.S.P.C.A. We are proud to provide a voice for these wonderful animals. I ask you though to kick start the Buskerville spirit early by bring down some donations and supplies. They have a wish list, and are always in need of Clay cat litter, dry kitten and puppy food, blankets , wood shavings, rabbit food, rodent food,cleaning supplies, office supplies, you name it they can probably use it somewhere! We will be accepting these items on the day of Buskerville too. (http://www.sdg.ontariospca.ca/)

Thank you to everyone last year who helped kick start a wonderful event for our awesome city, Cornwall!!!!
I am counting down the days to The Sounds of Buskerville. See you all there.
What I love about Buskerville is its complete lack of pretension. It’s about the music and there’s lots of music as nearly every downtown corner will be filled with talent from 10:30 – 5:30 on Saturday July 30th!
Check out some of our coverage from last year to get a feel of what’s going to be here this year! LINK
