Just a note to let you know that this weekend is the Danforth East Arts Fair! It’s my neighbourhood art fair and my favourite of the year. I love it because it is family friendly, is put on the by amazing dedicated neighbourhood organization DECA, the friendly attendees and amazing volunteers, and the fact that has around 50 wonderful local handmade artisans and is therefore just the right size for walking the full circuit to see what’s there, and then going back to do your shopping.
It’s held at East Lynn Park (google map here) which is at 1949 Danforth Ave (just west of Woodbine), and it’s this Saturday & Sunday (September 19 & 20) from 10am – 5pm.
To see the full list of exhibitors, check out the deca-arts.com website. The folks who will be there who have also been one of my featured artisans are:
- Clayshapes Pottery
- Culture Snap Photography
- Heart’s Haven
- Lisa Young Design
- Lynn’s Lids
- Mikafleur Design
- Queenie’s Cards
- Red Thread Design
- things from secret minouette places
I’ll be in a slightly different spot this year, just south of my usual spot at the top of the hill in booth 64 (beside Clayshapes & Culture Snap and behind Heart’s Haven!). Full list of vendors and their locations is here on Facebook.
Here’s their schedule of events on both Saturday & Sunday (10am-5pm):
So come by with the kids and check out the amazing local handmade wares, plus food, live music, and children’s activities!
