Come for the Arts – Come for the Entertainment

It all happens in the Iris Grove Site of MacGregor Point Park’s Huron Campground. On the weekend of September 16 and 17, festival artists and artisans will display and sell their paintings, watercolors, collages, sculptures, stained glass, photography, pottery, jewelry, woodworking and more. Some Vendors will be offering various workshops as well.

This year, the Festival gives a record number of artists and artisans the opportunity to share and sell their work, outdoors, surrounded by MacGregor Point’s autumn beauty.

‘Wild for the Arts’ is more than just an Art Festival in the Woods however.  It is live entertainment and workshops all weekend long.

On Saturday and Sunday Mornings, Artist-in-Residence David Doyle conducts a hands on experience using watercolors on a variety of papers. And it’s FREE! Registration is limited to 15 per day. Register at wildforheart@gmail.com .

Writer-in-Residence David Beverly-Foster and his guitar will recount his twelve day, 200 kilometre trek following the Grand River, that became his new book “Walking Home” – his tale of traveling, on foot, 200 km in 12 days from Waterloo to near Chesley.  Andrew Armitage calls Walking Home “a heck of a good book” published by Brucedale Press.

Songstress Madison Galloway entertains with her signature style of folk-rock and blues. She captures the ears and hearts of her audience with guitar, harmonica, and ukulele in a performance that is riveting for its energy.

Buskers will be about and the folks from Blackboard Sound will be on hand with ukulele demonstrations and lots more.

Face painting and a children’s playground, Kid’s Creativity Programs an Artist’s Adventure Trail, Interpretive Programs and stories about Cultural Sharing are happening on both days.

WEEKEND PARK ADMISSION IS FREE.

COME FOR THE ART. COME FOR THE ENTERTAINMENT.

The Campsite Studio Tour runs Saturday, September 15 and Sunday, September 16, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Iris Grove Sites of Huron Campground at MacGregor Point Park.
