It's one of those must go to spots in St.John's. Lots of pubs, night life etc. In the summer, the street is filled with people and music - fun environment.

Sublime, chef-prepared food at Greensleeves Pub: Gravlak, mussels, cod chowder and more! Then there is the nightly entertainment. Nothing this good in Vancouver! Really! Step across the street for more music at O'Reilly's Irish Pub. And 4 blocks away is the Amazing Jag Hotel. No...More

My 2 sons and I went pub crawling for an afternoon. We visited the following places for beers and some grub food: Yellow bellies, Greensleeves, O'Reilly. A good day and a great place to unwind.

This is a must experience for sure. Though you have to be drinking age to go in the pubs, the street life is busy and energetic even when no festivals are on.

Great place to go out with friends to socialize, have a drink or two and dance. Lots of bars on the street, and loads of people. Live music everywhere. Bands of all types.

We will be attending the Festival this summer and hoping you can help with my question. I see that there are tickets for sale for performances. Are these tickets for that performance or is it for access to the street? Not sure whether to order tickets ahead of time as not sure exactly what they are for. Sent an email to their website but no reply. Hope you can clarify for us thanks Lori
