HOTC Attendees Wanted

Heart of the City is again trying something new and we want to hear from you! We are hosting two different focus groups this month: one for first time festival goers, and the other for repeat attendees. The date is set for September 16 from 1:00-2:30 p.m. for the first-timers, and 3:00-4:30 p.m. for return participants.

We’ll be asking classic questions such as: what brought you down to the festival? What did you like, or did not enjoy? Where can we improve? Do you have any ideas for the festival’s future development? I also hear a rumour that there will be some light refreshments served.

With your help we can continue growing with this vibrant community!

If you’d like to get involved, please contact Charity for more information at
