Britannia Village Arts Crawl happening this weekend
Mark your calendars for Saturday July 22! The beach and picnics are giving way to the arts and music in Britannia Village for the Second Annual Britannia Village Arts Crawl.
A full list of participants and information about their art will be available at www.facebook.com/BritanniaVillageCommunityArtCrawl .
On Crawl day, pick up a map and list of artists at the welcome booth beside the bike path and stroll north along Britannia Road. Then return along Bradford and Kehoe Streets. Don’t miss Salomas, a teenage jazz/blues/funk band that is back after stealing the show in 2022.
Most artists will be exhibiting and selling their work, but several will also have “hands on” experiences for kids to make prints, or do some wood turning.
Top off the afternoon with a quiet walk through the Mud Lake Conservation Area, or just enjoying Britannia Park.
Visitors are asked to please park outside the Village itself, to make it easier and safer for the many pedestrians who will be enjoying the Village that afternoon. OC Transpo route 51 runs every half hour along the Crawl route.
Britannia Arts Crawl 2023 is a project of the local artists and musicians, with support and encouragement of the Britannia Village Community Association. The First Crawl was organized in 2022 by local artists and musicians led by Sandy Heron and Sue Merrill.
Please note: In case of inclement weather, the Crawl will be held July 23.
