The Iceberg Alley Performance Tent is an eleven day Festival created to showcase the unique culture, traditions and heritage of Newfoundland and Labrador alongside nationally and internationally acclaimed entertainment. Music performances of all genres are being held under a 36,000 square foot “big top” tent in the culturally historic area within the City of St. John’s known as Pleasantville, on the banks of Quidi Vidi Lake.
The event has been designed with the patron experience foremost in mind and to maximize the economic impact through visitations and the promotion of our Province as an authentic experience destination.
The Iceberg Alley Performance Tent is wheelchair accessible. There has been an elevated viewing area platform created in the main tent designated for patrons using wheelchairs or mobility aides with direct view of the stage. Please note that organizers will make best efforts to accommodate all requests, if the designated section is at capacity there may be a wait.
For those people who do not need to access the designated area, but would prefer not to stand during the show, there are 750+ seats accessible directly in front of the stage that are available on a rush basis (first come, first serve).
Support persons accompanying patrons with disabilities can access the tent at no additional cost. (only one support person per attendee). One (1) ticket must be purchased between the two (2) people attending. Please identify your support person when you arrive at the festival gate and we will assist you.
Designated accessible parking is available at the rear of the tent (VIP Entrance) which is located off Churchill Avenue.
If you have any other questions, please let us know – we’re happy to help!
