Summer is in full swing and I will be taking part in a couple of the many art & craft shows in the area. First on the agenda, this Sunday, July 25 is Herbfest, which is held annually at the beautiful Herb Gardens in Almonte. Check out their website http://www.herbfest.ca/ for specifics about this year's event. If you are a foodie or a gardener you will love this event; if you're not, there are plenty of other activities, vendors and relaxing outdoor spaces to enjoy. I will have some planters and landscape platters there as well as the usual range of utilitarian pots.
The following week-end I'll be in Bancroft for the annual Art & Craft Show which is held in the city's Millenium Park on Sat. July 31 & Sun. Aug. 1. The well-known Bancroft Gemboree is going on at the same time, so there is lots to see & do in this mineral rich area of Ontario. Details about the Gemboree and the Art & Craft Show can be seen at http://www.bancroftdistrict.com/ and click on the Events Calendar.
