For the second year in a row, KDG has the busker spirit, and you won’t want to miss the action at our second double header of the season: Carnival Carnage! Jugglers, poi artists, musicians and more are coming off the streets and onto the flat track before and between bouts. The party, as always, continues into the night with music at The Mansion and the chance to meet your favourite derby girls off the track.
The big night is Saturday, July 14th, and you can look forward to a re-match between your favourite frenemies, the Rogue Warriors and the Skateful Dead, as well as an exciting inter-league game between KDG’s Disloyalists and Rideau Valley Roller Girls’ Riot Squad.
Your teams have been racking up the experience and training day and night in the heat of the mid-summer Memorial Centre. This bout comes days after an intense training session with one of derby’s founding mothers, Bonnie D. Stroir of the San Diego Derby Dolls. Our teams are going to be full of new skills, strength and inspiration as they hit the track July 14th – you won’t want to miss this one.
At half-time, you’ll enjoy the music of Kingston’s Swamp Ward Orchestra, and as always, a plentiful beer garden and awesome KDG merch table.
Doors open at 5:30, the first whistle blows at 6:30, and the second bout starts at 8:30. Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door, and are available online and at The Mansion, Novel Idea, Get Funky Boutique, Life Yoga, UPS, Eat a Peach, and Blossoms.
