Once again artists and artisans from across the province offer up a tantalizing array of one-of-a-kind arts and crafts.
The Hackett Park Arts and Craft Fair runs this weekend Saturday, Aug. 17, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, Aug. 18, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The fair is one of the largest juried arts and crafts fairs in the province and it is the perfect opportunity for collectors and shoppers alike to find beautiful and unique handcrafted items.
Bring the entire family and make a day of it. Musical acts Knotty Dotters, Katie & the Cornpones, Corduroy Road and many others entertain during the two-day festival, interspersed with the Driftwood Players’ story theatre and Gerardo Avila’s magic act.
Children can get their faces painted by Tracy Lloyd and everyone can sample the mouth-watering food choices from fresh salmon and prawns to gourmet hot dogs and vegetarian delights.
The fair is a fundraising event for the Sunshine Coast Arts Council, which has been serving the community in support of the arts since 1966. Admission is by suggested donation of $3 for adults, $2 for seniors. Children under 12 accompanied by an adult get in for free.
