Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, June through October, we will be closing Queen Street East, Cambridge, from Guelph Ave. to Tannery St. for #WalkQueen; a celebration of Hespeler’s unique and intimate Village district. This public space invites residents, neighbours and tourists to experience life in Hespeler Village in a new way. In addition to closing down the street, local businesses, community groups and volunteers are collaborating by hosting festivals, events, performances and activities that are open, inclusive and free for everyone.

Check back regularly for new updates as details are announced! Connect with us on Facebook and Instagram to see all the buzz in the community!
