WEYBURN — The sidewalk loop in Weyburn's Jubilee Park will be packed with 42 stalls featuring a wide variety of art, crafts, food and activities for the Gifted summer art market on Saturday, July 13.

The outdoor market will open at 10 a.m., and will feature many local artists and craftspersons, face-painting, a scavenger hunt and food vendors until 4 p.m.

“We have painters, crocheters, potters, watercolourists, fibre artists and more, along with face painting, kids crafting, and a scavenger hunt. The Weyburn Fire Brigade will be grilling up some burgers, and for dessert there is a wealth of options from cotton candy, to candy apples to straight up candy,” said Regan Lanning, curator for the Weyburn Arts Council.

The food vendors will include the Weyburn Fire Brigade, the Weyburn Humane Society, Weyburn Therapeutic Animal Park, Meok Ja bubble tea, Stranger Danger Candy, and Little Loaf Dog.

Children’s activities can be found at Facetastic Faces, the Weyburn Public Library, SaskPower, Collabartive Studios and the Weyburn Arts Council booth.

Lanning is excited for this year’s event, and commented, “We have more community involvement that ever, more artists than ever, including jewelry, sewing, quilting, clothing, macramé, lapidary, painted rocks and handcrafted soaps to name just a few.”

The Arts Council booth will be located right off the 13th Street parking lot, with booths extending in both directions from that point, and they will also have information, as will the SaskPower booth, and the Crocus 80 Theatre booth.

The booths start on the loop from the Douglas Road parking lot and go in a clockwise direction around almost to the central rock circle, and the path to the Credit Union Spark Centre.

The art market is an annual project of the Weyburn Arts Council, Weyburn Art Gallery and the City of Weyburn.
