2014-05-29 - Celebrate 1864 Week with Qu├ębec/PEI Entertainment

Come celebrate the unique place in Canadian history that the City of Charlottetown and Ville de Québec share by checking out the free concert being held at the Confederation Centre of the Arts on Saturday, June 14.

The Centre’s amphitheatre (rain location: Memorial Hall) will be filled with music as part of the City’s 1864 Anniversary Celebrations.

Charlottetown’s own Mayor Clifford Lee and Ville de Québec Mayor Régis Labeaume will kick off the June 14 event at noon, followed by the bilingual sounds of PEI’s Ten Strings And A Goatskin at 12:15 p.m.; Québec entertainer François Duchesne at 1:15 p.m.; PEI singer-songwriter Meaghan Blanchard at 2:15 p.m.; Québec’s Who Are You at 3:15 p.m.; Islander Caroline Bernard at 4:15 p.m.; and at 5:15 p.m., Québec’s The Seasons will perform.

The concert will be one of the many ways the City of Charlottetown and the Ville de Québec will celebrate the roles each played in the building of Canada. The free, six-day festival – Charlottetown’s 1864 Anniversary Celebrations – will also include the official declaration of Québec Day and a series of other culture, beautification and promotional initiatives from June 10-15, 2014.
