Seven bonfires and a native drum circle marked the end of the second annual Day on the Grand Festival took place on Saturday September 8 in and around Brant’s Crossing.  Events took place throughout the afternoon beginning at 3pm with artists, music, nature walks and theatre. This local event brought out some of Brantford and area’s most interesting creative people.  

The event featured various musical acts on ‘the stage’ in the grassy clearing, on the surface of the skate park, and under the bridge overpass.  An array of artists offered demonstrations and workshops.
