Old Home Week
Thursday, August 8, 2019 (all day)
Runs From Aug 8 - Aug 17
Old Home Week is a quintessential Charlottetown experience that celebrates the Island’s deep agricultural roots and its rich history of harness racing; it’s sure to be loved by all ages. The 10-day event features amusement park rides, children’s entertainers, a kids’ zone, livestock shows, and much more. Of course, there’s plenty to keep the adults entertained as well including talented Island musicians and a lively marketplace. An Old Home Week ‘must’ is visiting Redshores Racetrack & Casino to take in the harness racing, while the Gold Cup & Saucer Parade (Aug17) is beloved by both Islanders and visitors.
