Bard in the Park has the good fortune of performing in one of the
most unique and picturesque settings in the city Kew Gardens has
been a public park used for various event and festivals for more
than 100 years. Located at the north end of the park The Alex Christie
Bandshell, is home to a number of events, including Bard in the Park,
the Beaches International Jazz Festival and the Beach Celtic Festival
Kew Gardens is one of the main hubs of activity for The Beaches.
This idyllic area of the city is a perfect place to host Shakespeare
outdoors. Steps from Lake Ontario and full of lush greenery this area
sets the perfect scene for many of the great Bard's works.
The Beaches is easily accessible by bike, foot and transit (501 Queen
Streetcar, 64 Main Street bus or the 92 Woodbine bus). Driving can be a bit
of a challenge as parking is very sparse, Bard encourages patrons to use
alternative methods whenever possible.
Bard in the Park is grateful the Beaches community has continued to welcome us back every year. Without the support of this community Bard in the Park could not exist.
