The snow has finally melted away (hooray!). The weather is warming up. What better time than now to announce two great outdoor shows that we’ll be participating in? Even better, they’re both shows we’ve attended before, so we know they’re going to be a great time.
We’ve participated in Ravenswing for several years now, and it’s one of the most fun events we do. The vendors are fabulously unique – last year I bought cupcakes, a handmade notebook, and an heirloom tomato seedling. Everything is handmade (or handgrown!), and generally quite inexpensive. The live music is always fun. Ravenswing also sponsors the Clothesline Project, raising awareness about violence against women. Join us in Minto Park, on Elgin between Lewis & Gilmour Streets, on Sunday, May 29th.
The Orleans Festival takes place from June 3-4th, at the Shenkman Arts Centre. This is the second year of the festival, and we’re pleased to be a part of it again. The Festival truly is a celebration of all things creative. Artists will be located inside the building. Stroll along a boulevard lined with artisans (like Drakestail!), both selling their work and giving demonstrations of their skills. There’s a great line-up of musical talent, and don’t get me started on the food! Several local eatieries will be there, and if it’s anything like last year, I’ll be leaving with a full, content tummy. This year, Drakestail is pleased to be teaming up with NicoleArt. See you there!
