Indulge your senses at the 37th Buckhorn Fine Art Festival
A Top 100 Festival in Ontario for the past seven years, this prestigious event always inspires visitors to linger longer to experience demonstrations and special presentations by the artists on site, and performances from a variety of accomplished musicians. The Festival also includes the special feature exhibit “Mystique”, an art competition and a youth art display.
A family ARTivity Zone provides a variety of interactive art activities for kids three to 103. Open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, the “A-Zone” will feature a “tour of studios” where budding artists can explore different mediums and projects.
You’ll also find vendors selling fine food products and lots of opportunities to sample many different culinary delights: each food vendor is offering a Toonie Taste which has been paired with a selection from the wine bar.
This is a great year to plan to attend the Preview Night Garden Party. Not only will you enjoy the magic of an “artful” summer’s evening in our beautiful Festival Park, but this year half of the net proceeds of ticket sales go to benefit YWCA Peterborough Haliburton. It’s the perfect combination of a good time for a good cause.
