Art on the Farm

Family fun under the trees in Columbia Valley August 15

By Kris Ponto, Columbia Valley

 

The 11th Annual Art on the Farm event takes place this year on Saturday, August 15.

 

rt on the Farm 2015 is one month away! We still have space for more artists (cost $50) and musicians/dance (we can pay).

Music: This year's musical entertainment includes Norine Braun, wonderful singer songwriter who attended many Art on the Farms over the years, and Tony - the accordion man!

 

He is the mysterious accordion player who has just shown up and played in our fields. This year he will be a scheduled performer at the event. We are still in the process of booking another musical group.

Food: We have a Wood-Fired Pizza vendor this year, Hotties Pastas and coffees, and the Columbia Valley outdoor BBQ crew!

 

We are at new location at the Columbia Valley Hall. We are an outdoor event but now we have access to wheelchair accessible washrooms and grounds.

For artists that have paid, If you have not sent us your bios, please do so we can update the website.

For anyone who is interested in selling art, send us some pictures of your work for jurying!!
