Peterborough's largest free recreation program returns Saturday, July 15th, 2017 from 9am to 3pm!

Peterborough Pulse invites the whole city to walk, bike, dance, play and socialize in spaces typically used by cars. For one summer day, George Street transforms into a vibrant car-free corridor filled with families pushing strollers, cyclists and roller-skaters, Karate and Zumba, art and music, and more.

In 2017, Peterborough Pulse Celebrates the 150 with special photo exhibits, arts installations, and activities that showcase and celebrate our unique community and, we hope, provide inspiration for the next 150 years. We are grateful for the Province of Ontario's support of this open streets event.
