“What a selection!”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

A large variety of different vendors and artists packed into a small but not crowded space. A little something for everyone. Full of history! Thank you to Ghostly Walks for the history and some of the more shaded past of this area. Very interesting

“A busy place - loved it -”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

We enjoyed walking through Bastion Square. There were many artists and crafts people selling their items. Buskers and musical acts entertained the crowds. It was a great time. Do add this lovely square to your route.

“Fun outdoor shops”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

Enjoyed meeting a local book author, J. Robert Whittle, who had his books for sale there at the square, and we purchased a couple. There was a family musical group called the O'briens playing excellent music, and craft designers of various types. Great place to check out.

“Nothing Special”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

This is advertised like it is a "destination", when in fact there are a couple of shops and restaurants in the area and that is it. There is some nice art in the Square.

“Live music, historic location”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Best place to catch an open air concert while taking in the wonderful architecture of the lovely older buildings. An easy walk from downtown, with lots of small shops and eateries along the way.
