MARKET

Cornwall Waterfest has more to offer at its beautiful waterfront location than just the excitement of dragon boat racing.

Food and craft vendors set up stalls in the lively Waterfest Market and provide spectators and participants with delicious food and beverage offerings and the opportunity to view and purchase unique artwork, crafts, and specialty items.

Between races, grab a snack, and browse the displays while being entertained by some talented local performers on the Waterfest Stage.

The Vendor Village will be open from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm on the day of the event.
