Three different groups of artists and performers in Merrickville are partnering to host a public celebration on July 23rd and 24th.
The “Merrickville Festival of the Arts” is a collaboration between the Merrickville Artists’ Guild, Theatre Night in Merrickville, and the Merrickville Organization for Culture and the Arts.
Nick Previsich, a member of the Artists’ Guild, says the festival will feature a variety of different attractions for people who attend.
“There will be a delightful array of one-act plays, local musicians, thought-provoking poetry and original art on display,” he says. “This year we are pleased to have the participation of local authors and there will be a community painting mural for you to express yourself artfully.”
According to Previsich, the festival is being held at Blockhouse Park near the Rideau Canal. He also says it’ll be a family friendly event, and there won’t be any admission fees.
If you’re interested in attending, it’s happening from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Any updates are being posted on the Merrickville Artists’ Guild website.
