The Junction Summer Solstice Festival

  • Multiple venues
  • 12 p.m.

Is there any better day on which to plan a celebration than the longest day of the year? The answer is no, which is why The Junction Summer Solstice Festival is taking advantage of our lengthy daylight hours with a small-town street party in the big city. Munch on tasty vendor treats while taking in performances by acrobats, roaming artists, and musicians, or participate in a variety of activities before settling down to watch late-night movie screenings.

This weekend is all about vintage sexy with the inaugural Canadian Pin-Up Burlesque Show. As can be expected, there will be strip-tacular performances aplenty by ladies like Betina May, Bianca Boom Boom, Regina Dentata, Claire Voltaire, Pastel Supernova, and Maria Juana. You might even get your own pants charmed off by the Knicker Kickers Cancan Troupe, and the Sweet Tease Barbershop Quartet.
