It should be Thursday, Aug 1 to Tuesday, Aug 6. George Street Fest ends the night before the Royal St. John's Regatta which is the first Wednesday of August (weather permitting). That falls on August 7, 2013.

Anyone know where the most convenient place to stay would be? I'm coming out from Toronto and don't want to get stuck somewhere too far away!

There are many hotels around the George Street area. Depends on what you want to pay!

In general, you are not too far away with any of the hotels in St. John's as long as you are not near the airport....it's a question of being able to stumble back to your hotel or take a cab back.....

The closest hotels to the Street would be the Delta, Blue on Water, Murray Premises hotel - within 5 minute walk.

But as the previous poster mentioned, there are many hotels a short walk or cab ride away. The Sheraton, Marriott Courtyard, Quality Inn Harbourview and Hometel are all downtown just a little longer walk (10-15 minutes) or a $7 cab ride.

There is also the Holiday Inn & Hillview Terrace Suites which are not walking distance but not an expensive cab ride - say about $15-20.

Hi,

I'm wondering if Great Big Sea has been scheduled for the Festival this year and if so when they are playing? There is nothing on their web site, nor the festival site...

Thanks
