  • The Canadian Guitar Festival
    The Canadian Guitar Festival celebrates digits? artful dexterity with performances, workshops, and competitions that pay tribute to the musical battleaxe. Strapped with a single-day pass, step into a workshop where champion string masters Don Ross, Stephen Bennett, and Gareth Pearson gently touch on the techniques that won them fingerstyle plucking competitions and spaghetti-separating battles. Sunday's schedule boasts performances at the covered pavilion by Canadian and international strum swamis such as Australia's folksy Hunter Van Larkins, Prince Edward Island's punky Brooke Miller, and Italy's eclectic Guitar Republic.

  • King's Town Players
    The King's Town Players regularly contribute entertaining culture to the community through stylized, passionate performances of material covering playwrights from Shakespeare to Steve Martin. Taking artistic liberties with its source, the King's Town Players re-imagine Romero's 1968 horrific tale, which first taught audiences about the walking dead's penchant for designer fashion. The vivid live stage-based story follows a gaggle of baffled humans trapped in a farmhouse as they work to hold down their fortress from the battling forces of brain eaters and the persistent hordes of time-share salesmen outside. During the Halloween spectacle's five-night residency, audience members discover the edge of their seat is either a vulnerable resting place or a comfortable perch to return to night after night.

  • Live Nation Ontario Concerts GP, Inc.
    With a backdrop of Lake Ontario and the city skyline, Echo Beach ignites its sophomore season with the Sam Roberts Band, who the Montreal Gazette proclaimed ?straight-on, loud rock n? roll at its most crowd-pleasing.? The outfit?s live shows draw from a four-LP-deep discography in energetic performances that led Spinner.com to crown them a Can?t Miss Act. As dusk recedes into twinkling night, the outdoor stage's moody lighting adds atmosphere to early hits such as the folksy ?Brother Down? as well as new material from last year?s Collider. Recorded in Chicago with producer Brian Deck, known for his work with Modest Mouse and Iron and Wine, the album marked new terrain for the chart-toppers and multi-Juno winners. Tracks such as ?The Last Crusade? brew a soulful atmosphere by interweaving horn-fed funk with the needling guitar of Dave Nugent.

  • Grand Theatre
    The Kingston Canadian Film Festival celebrates local and national productions with a three-day presentation of new movies, film receptions, and director and cast discussions. Film enthusiasts explore the life and career of the late Nell Shipman in "On a Grand Scale," a curated exhibition that probes her theatrical contributions as an actress, writer, director, and inventor of the scrolling credit. The silent-film-era artist, known for portraying strong female characters throughout her 13-year career, starred in more than 20 films, including movies based on James Oliver Curwood stories. As the clock tolls 4 p.m., audiences make their way into a darkened theatre for a showing of Shipman's Back to God's Country? a taboo-shattering 1919 silent film set in the Arctic wilderness?which will be paired with live musical accompaniment and fake indoor blizzards.

  • Time to Laugh Comedy Club
    Time to Laugh Comedy Club has earned a black belt in gut busting by providing well-known and amateur stand-ups from across North America a stage from which to cast their punch lines. December?s rotating lineup sports a cabal of Canadian joke hurlers such as impressionist Mark Walker and observational cannon Mike Harrison, as well as the hard-rocking riffs of musical comic Jay Brown. With seating for more than 200 audience members, the club pleasantly accommodates pairs and clusters of friends determined to break the monotony of hosting monotony nights at home. Time to Laugh is situated in the Hub of Kingston, making it a convenient comedic nightcap after dinner or a business-casual food fight at one of the many neighbouring restaurants.

  • "Oh Canada, Eh?"
    Within an imposing log cabin in Niagara Falls exists one of the world's only opportunities to be served a steaming hot meal by a singing mountie. Over its nearly two-decade history, Oh Canada Eh? Dinner Theatre has performed for more than 750,000 audience members and earned Niagara Falls Tourism's Attraction of the Year award seven times. The theatre's namesake show puts Canadian pop and traditional songs in the mouths of wacky national characters including Anne of Green Gables, hockey players, and Klondike Kitty. And it isn't the only show on the menu: holiday attractions, themed musical revues, and the occasional Rocky Horror Show pop up on the calendar from time to time. During most shows, the performer/servers whoosh from table to red-checkered table bearing an authentic Canadian feast. Dishes can include French Canadian pea soup, Alberta roast beef, and Manitoba roast chicken, and diners can sample any course they like—they're even welcome to ask for seconds. Maple-chocolate cake typically wraps up the extravaganza and provides an edible lumberjack beard of frosting.
