Amongst all the vendors, food trucks, face painters and buskers, some seriously talented entertainers attend Carrot Fest to please the crowds of people attending the street festival. They are not your typical entertainers that play live music on stage or juggle objects, you will see only the best at #CarrotFest2018. Be sure to head to the courthouse parking lot on Saturday at 11:00am, 1:00pm, 2:00pm, 3:00pm, 5:00pm, and 6:00pm.
This year we are pleased to welcome back the BMX Stunt Show – a team of BMX bikers showing off their tricks and flips! For more information check out their website.

Bradford West Gwillimbury is lucky to have a fire department that is so actively involved in and supportive of our community events. Each year, for Carrot Fest, the crew and the truck set up at the bottom of Holland St. East, one of the entrances to the festival. Here, they have on display from 9:00am-5:00pm the truck and their supplies to promote fire prevention to attendees. They allow those that are interested to explore the truck and sit in the seats. Walk down to the bottom of Holland St. and Colborne St. on August 18 to check it out!
Every major city or festival is filled with street buskers – street performers that are simply there to provide entertainment. Thanks to our sponsors, Alectra and Tim Hortons, Carrot Fest is filled with different acts and performances.
During the festival there are two locations in which you can see the performances over the course of the day. The first is at Alectra Busker Pitch at 49 Holland St. West along with Tim Hortons Busker Pitch found at the corner or Nelson St. and Holland St. East. If you don’t’ know what that means, simply just look for the large crowds circling around the different acts (we also have maps available at the festival)! Busker performances begin at 10:00am and start on the hour, every hour until 5:00pm.
Keep an eye out at #CarrotFest2018 for the following street buskers:
Do you love dogs? Do you love watching dogs do tricks? Then you will love Aqua Dogs!
Coming to #CarrotFest2018 is Aqua Dogs – a competitive dog docking jumping league that features dogs and their trainers competing in the most serious (and fascinating) game of fetch. Dogs from all over, are showcasing how well they can Go Long, Go Fetch and Go High by launching themselves off a dock in to water to catch an object for a prize. Only the experts can compete and it is incredible to watch how well these good boys and girls can fetch no matter their size or breed.
Bleachers and a comical commentator are present to ensure the best view and audio for the audience.
This spectacular free event will be hosted in the Bradford & District Community Centre portion of Carrot Fest on Saturday August 18 starting at 10:00a.m.
