Summer fun is an everyday thing at Market Square Market Square continues to make its mark as the premier gathering place for Saint John’s Uptown as plans for summer activities are bigger than ever. The shopping and dining centerpiece of Saint John’s Uptown features events virtually every day through the summer months. Wildly popular events such as Saint John Idol and Country Star Competition are back for another season. Saint John Idol is in its ninth year and takes place on the Market Square stage each Wednesday from June 29 to August 31. Country Star kicks off July 7 and runs every Thursday through September 1st. “We are so thrilled for this upcoming summer chock full of family fun, nightlife entertainment, activities, rides, music festivals, competitions and so much more,” a spokesperson said in a news release. Building on the success of the idol-style competitions, Market Square will be host to another new weekly feature with “So You Think You Can Dance”, which starts Monday, July 4 and runs every Monday through August 29. Canada Day Countdown has seen huge crowds in past year and this year is the biggest yet as headliners Bedouin Soundclash and The United Steelworkers of Montreal will take to the Market Square stage on June 30. A full evening of music will also include music by Hey Ocean!, Keith Mullins, the Earthbound Trio and an after-party DJ. “We have stepped it up this year with our largest Canada Day Countdown lineup to date.” Just a week later on July 8 and 9, Market Square becomes the ofﬁcial venue for the Salty Jam Festival, which this year features performances by Rosanne Cash, Jam Stampede and the Downchild Blues Band. On the weekend of July 21 to 24, the popular Buskers on the Boardwalk Festival takes place which annually draws 50,000 over the course of the four day festival. August then brings
the Hola Fiesta, a celebration of Spanish style, followed by the Fundy Fog Festival celebrating music across the generations. Surf is up for the Boardwalk Beach Party on August 19 and 20, followed a week later by the Country Boardwalk Style which will see many cowboys and cowgirls grace the boardwalk restaurant scene.
