Waterfront Festival

Belleville Waterfront & Multicultural Festival

July 11 – 14 @ West Zwick’s Park

The Waterfront & Multicultural Festival is the Bay of Quinte’s largest festival spanning 4 days where we celebrate; Food, Music, Multiculturalism and Family Fun. Voted as one of Ontario’s Top 100 events 5 years in a row, this event has something for everyone.


Last year, we hosted 11 “countries” in the multicultural food village serving up fresh homemade cultural dishes such as; Polish perogies & sausages, Mexican tacos, Indian curry, Portuguese chicken, Greek salads, and so much MORE. This event was built for the food lovers of the world. With dozens of dishes inspired and cooked by cultures around the world, you will need all 4 days to even scratch the surface. Not a foodie or have a picky eater in your family, we also feature a multitude of food trucks and vendors serving up burgers, fries, funnel cake, fresh lemonade, smoothies and all your food truck favourites.

While food is the major attraction, what is food without great entertainment? With 4 days of almost none stop music you’ll be sure to hear some of your favourites, as well as, discover something new. The mainstage brings together a wide variety of genres and decades to keep you singing and dance all day and night. Featuring top notch cover & party bands, local favourites, multicultural entertainment and emerging Canadian artists playing everything from rock, jazz, country and pop spanning the classics of the 50’s right up to today’s favourites, there is no shortage of musical entertainment.

But wait there’s more… We also have a huge children’s village and midway that features; arts & crafts, face painting, balloon art, buskers, meet & greets with famous children’s characters, rides and games for all ages. It also features a children’s stage presenting acts for kids and the young at heart such as; magicians, comedians, music, animal shows and jugglers. The children’s village will be sure to keep you and your family entertained all day long for 4 straight days.

While the kids are riding the Ferris wheel or taking in a show, you will want to browse the vendor market. With vendors offering artisan crafts and jewellery, local food products, art, collectibles, clothing, health and wellness products, and so much more this is your opportunity to eat, shop and be merry.

This is only a small portion of what the Waterfront & Multicultural Festival has to offer. You must really join us and experience it to believe it. Oh and did we mention that Admission is FREE! Yes, that is right you can gain access for Free. There are also free shuttle buses that run from various locations to the park all day, and parking is available on site for only $5.
