The Princess Street Promenade is back!


Downtown Kingston invites you to take a stroll down Princess Street September 17th for the Princess Street Promenade! This popular festival, which runs from 10:00am to 5:00pm, closes Princess Street to vehicular traffic from Barrie Street to Ontario Street.


Promenade is a one-day festival that promotes active living and community involvement in the downtown. Many will remember some of the amazing activities from Promenades past, and downtown businesses and community groups are sure to amaze again! With giveaways, live music, face painting, free samples, fun challenges for kids, and – of course – the best shopping of the year, there is something for every member of the family to enjoy!

Streets will be closed from approximately 7:00am - 7:00pm to allow for set-up and tear-down of the activities. Side streets between Ontario St. and Barrie St. (with the exception of Barrie itself and Bagot Street) will also be closed for the festival. This better allows for the safe passage of pedestrians across streets during the event. Access to public parking lots will not be affected.
