The Great George Street Tour
(*Available at select times in French and English, Monday to Saturday. Visit box office for more information.) Relive the past on one of Canada’s most famous streets, where every building and street corner has a story to tell, where you just might bump into a Victorian statesman or John Hatch, the town crier. This classic Charlottetown tour guides visitors down one of only two national historic streets in the country- the very walk that the founding fathers strolled in 1864.

What are Relaxed Performances?
Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.
These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
Relaxed Performances offered during the 2021 Charlottetown Festival:
