“Summerfest has grown again – now a four day event !!”
August 23rd, 24th, 25th & 26th, 2007

As a festival, Sudbury SummerFest Foundation has unique roots. It actually got its start through a charity. The founders did not foresee what their idea would come to be. They had a small plan and it grew.

SummerFest organizers are hard at work putting the final touches on another spectacular family weekend (August 23, 24, 25, 26, 2007) for Sudburians and visitors!

Now a regular part of Summerfest are performing artists bringing originality, uniqueness, fun, and comedy. Perhaps in 2004 you had the chance to watch a juggler riding a 6 foot high unicycle. Or perhaps you enjoyed the comedy of ballet on stilts or the music of Bandolini, the one-man band. Or did Charlie Chaplin and his antics capture your attention?

In 2005, you would not have wanted to miss Circus Johnathan walking his tightrope or Charlie Little Fingers and his junior mosh pit. Chester, the mouthy side-kick to master ventriloquist Mark Crocker would have kept you howlin’!

If science is your thing, Mad Science has been a part of Summerfest for several years making science fun with real hands on entertainment. Story Socks regaled children with stories on the Story Book Stage.

If drumming is your thing, Jeff Stewart Spirit of the World Drumming kept your toes tappin’ while you played as part of the drum circle.
