Wellington Water-Week

Arts Festival

Introducing Kate Golding
About Wellington Water-Week

Wellington Water Week is taking place from August 17-25, 2019 in Wellington, Prince Edward County. Inspired by Stockholm’s World Water Week, the purpose of this week-long festival is to highlight the arts, community and the local environment together in a celebration of water.

The main objectives are to produce and present a series of exceptional concerts, while at the same time, encouraging community groups in the village to take part by creating their own thematically linked programming – turning the village into a canvas of water-themed art, music, exhibits, screenings, speakers and activities.

For a complete listing of all concerts and activities (a sample listed here) including free events and events for kids, please visit www.wellingtonwaterweek.org.
