The final Harvest Noir (yes, we are retiring) is going out with a big bang on Saturday October 3:
Headlined by two-time Canadian DMX champion DJ Shub battling DJ Acro on the dancefloor.
A small army of acrobats and sideshow acts will be on hand, including an edgy urban acrobatic parkour demonstration, stilt-walkers, face-painters, aerial cirque performance, tribal dancers, acrobatics, hoopers, ventriloquists, magicians, and fire dancers.
Celtic fiddlers Beat and Bows, backed by BBWC Wildcard winning beatboxer Julia Dales, are debuting as picnic accompaniment .
Two-time Juno nominee DJ Socalled will be bringing out the hip hop, klezmer, accordion, and piano as the Official Carnival music provider.
The Stan Clark Orchestra will be playing swing, ragtime, and jive while Ottawa Swing Dynamite's dancers provide swing dance demonstrations and lessons.
Also look out for a karaoke lounge by China Doll, tribal fusion dance/chillout tent by Mascarié, Opera performance by Joseph Song Chi, and more!
