Bia Bridge Street Summer Fest


Calling all locals and out-of-towners! The Carleton Place Business Improvement Association (BIA) invites you to visit downtown Carleton Place to enjoy a summer community extravaganza.


The 12th Annual Bridge Street Bazaar will showcase the center of this colourful and historical town including a sidewalk shop with over a hundred vendors. Visitors have the opportunity to shop, enjoy some great local entertainment, and eat at waterfront pubs and restaurants.
