HarbourSING! July 4: 7:00-8:15 pm

WHAT is the HarbourSING event?

HarbourVOICES! Festival’s final evening performance event will be HarbourSing!

This event is an open-air moveable feast of sound taking place in the downtown of St. John’s — along part of the historic and working harbour front and in areas throughout our very vibrant downtown Water Street Pedestrian Mall and the famous George Street.


8 performance venues are planned, and the ‘audience’ will visit various venues as collective moving groups led by very playful sea creatures (e.g. Hilda the Humpback, Tuffy the Turtle, Sedgewick the Seagull….).

The whole event is free to the public, but will require a special ticket to ensure being part of the sea creature groups.

Contact The Arts and Culture Centre Box Office for your free ticket.

You won’t want to miss this very unique event.

Thursday, July 4th. 7-8:15pm


Where will HarbourSING take place?

Performing groups from HarbourVOICES! Festival will be situated at one
of the 8 performance venues and the audience will be visiting some of
these — listening to a few songs, then moving on to another venue! The 8
venues are located along George St., the Water St. Pedestrian Mall, and
adjacent to Harbour Drive.

What happens if the weather is bad?

We have asked for a beautiful St. John’s evening for HarbourSING!
If the weather turns out to be too wet, cold, and blustery to be comfortable or safe, we will move HarbourSING! to the St. John’s Convention Centre.

Ticket holders will be notified of any change through an email and will have priority for entering the Convention Centre once all of the performers are in place.

Rain Ponchos!

If we only have light rain threats (i.e. not enough to move inside), we will have HarbourVOICES! PONCHOS for sale at the Convention Centre.

The very best way to ensure good weather
is to purchase a poncho in advance!!
