Harmony, Conversation and Friendly Competition | JUNE 28–AUGUST 23 | FREE
Confederation Players, in character, can be found throughout the grounds of Confederation Centre of the Arts, Victoria Row, Queen’s Square and surrounding areas. Have a burning question about Confederation? Ask away! Feel free to engage in conversation with our Players as they meander about historic downtown Charlottetown.
Feel free to eavesdrop on a lively debate on various subjects, current in the 1860s as our Players banter over chess or engage in a battle of wills and words in a lively game of croquet or horseshoes on the lawn. Or perhaps listen in as the Players join the Confederation Brass in song around mid-day on the Upper Plaza at the corner of Queen and Grafton Streets. You may even witness a duel of honour upon the grassy knoll on Richmond Street.
Experience the living history of the story of Confederation. In English and French | Tuesday to Sunday between 10 am-4:30pm
