I'll be with other local artists as we capture the people and the action at the First Annual Canada Day in Langford!

Come see us create amazing works of art! Purchase the artists' works! Let's get together for some art, love, and fun.

From the City of Langford's website:
Langford Mayor Stew Young.

“It has been a very challenging time over the last couple of years, and now more than ever we need to connect with friends and neighbours and get back to normal.”

The free event will feature a pancake breakfast (by donation), live music by local musician Vince Vaccaro as the headliner, face painting, a hot wing eating contest, brick yard games on the turf, artist painting demonstration, a blue-ribbon pie baking contest and more.

West Shore RCMP will be on-site during the day conducting K9 Unit demonstrations and Langford Fire Rescue will also be hosting a firefighter obstacle course.

The city is currently working with indigenous relations and communications consultant, Charla Huber, to coordinate a special presentation with local First Nations.

The concession and beer garden will be open all-day and the fun continues on into the evening.

Starlight Stadium’s Canada Day event will conclude with a family-friendly movie played on a massive inflatable screen on the turf, so attendees can enjoy a movie under the stars.

11 Jun 2022 - 12 Jun 2022 Fernwood Art Stroll Category: Show/Exhibit Event Website:
The Fernwood Art Stroll was a wonderful experience this year! I personally gained so much from my interactions with the "Strollers"! I sold a number of originals, which is a gratifying experience. I also sold several magnets - art for the fridge. My most popular one was Fernwood Sunset.

I can't wait to do it all again next year.
Much thanks to all the people who helped the artists bring it together for Fernwood.
