Artest Port Credit launched the summer this past weekend on the picturesque Credit River.
This year's Artfest Port Credit show was a hit and, the weather co-operated for us enthusiastic art and craft connoisseurs! We want to thank everyone that visited the show and also welcome and thank all of our Artfest art and craft exhibitors who exhibited their one-of-a-kind handcrafted treasures. Onward to the next Artfest show in Kingston this Canada Day long-weekend!
Artfest Port Credit celebrated over 100 of Canada's top artists and artisans beside the Credit River in Memorial Park! Offering functional pottery, glass art, one-of-a-kind jewellery, paintings, woodcraft, gourmet foods, live music, children's art classes and much more, Artfest was definitely the place to be!
The gourmet food selection this year ranged from delectable home-made butter tarts, tantalizing hot sauces, roasted and flavoured GMO free soya beans to beet burgers, beaver tails, tropical drinks in the fruit and organic ice-cream and jams, and monster sandwiches on thick, homemade bread. The food was amazing, to say the least.
Music at Artfest is always an extra added feature that sets the scene and keeps people rockin', boppin' and enjoying their time. This year's line up was perfect. Friday evening, Matt King opened the stage with songs on guitar and vocals presenting a wide music genre of popular tunes. Sat - Andy Griffiths took the stage playing his energetic and passionate rootsy folkin' rock music - In Betwe3n rocked the stage with music from the 60s and 70s, classic rock and a selection of newer alternative rock Sat evening.
The final day at Artfest Port Credit was filled with Latin music in the air, sunshine and crowds of happy people. The Farrucas Latin Duo presented a Latin performance that set the scene - the dynamic duo experimented with the diversity of Latin sounds with flutes, chimes and hand drums - painting an exotic musical portrait for the Artfest show.
Our next Artfest show is on Canada Day long weekend in Kingston. This show is our biggest offering 200+ exhibits of Canadian made art and craft.
