Joe Beef Market takes place this Saturday, September 11 th 2010, at the Joe Beef Park, located on Centre Street, at the corner of Richmond in Point St. Charles, from 10am until 4pm.

Some of the activities planned for this year include:

  • Historical skits by the PSC Community Theatre, with actors dressed in period costumes, and highlighting both Joe Beef and Thomas C. Keefer. Each year we honour an individual that has a street named after him/her in the Point and this year it is Thomas Keefer. (A small part of Atwater St. in the Point was recently changed to Thomas Keefer Street)
  • A number of Artisan Booths selling very interesting & unique goods
  • Joe Beef will be serving Free Soup from noon until 1pm
  • Some Irish music by Belfast-Andi
  • Information booths from Parks Canada & the Montreal Fire Museum
  • And much more…..
