Brewer, Baker, and a Metalmaker!
This special event will bring this year’s exhibition “Ontario Street: Brewers, Bakers and Boilermakers, 1830-1970” to life.
The evening will highlight a period when the workers, entrepreneurs and residents of Ontario Street on the waterfront represented a changing face of Kingston.
Highlights of the Ontario Street On Tap event include:
Guided tours by two Cultural Heritage Curators, Melissa and Tom.
6:30 pm - Boss Ladies of Ontario Street, with curator Melissa Cruise
7:30 pm - Rags to Riches to Rags, with curator Tom Riddolls
Paul Robertson will also be on site all evening to answer any questions visitors have about what was like researching and curating such an exhibit. He may also have a story or two that was unearthed that didn't make it into the text you see on the walls.
6:30 to 8:30 pm - Live, local music by Kingston’s own Goodnight Irenes. This talented band will be on hand to perform musical selections in front of a beautiful waterfront vista.
