Macdonald Festival 2011

The Festival’s showpiece is a musical-comedy entitled, “Sir John, Eh?”, performed daily at St. Andrews Church. Visitors can also enjoy special galleries at the Agnes Etherington Art Gallery and Bellevue House, a national short film and mural exhibition, and special presentations by Theatre Kingston’s Barefoot Players. With art, history and heritage, the Macdonald Festival is Kingston’s tribute to our favourite son -- an annual series of summer entertainments building toward Sir John A. Macdonald’s 200th birthday celebrations in 2015.
