First Sunday Stroll

June 3, 2012
10am - 4pm
Harold Black Park
953 Haist Street, Fonthill

We first met Erin when she was involved with the Brocante Lux markets in St. Catharine’s.  As soon as we heard that Erin was spearheading a new market, First Sunday Stroll, we knew it was going to be something worth visiting. Erin has gathered a bunch of quality artisans, sprinkled in some activities for the kids, added the unveiling of a new arts initiative for youth and an opportunity to donate to Pelham Cares to create a great day in Harold Black Park in Fonthill.
First Sunday Stroll is a community driven arts market featuring the works of over 85 artisans. These are the best of the best, with many local artisans and others coming from as far away as Oshawa to Ottawa. Many of our favourite 100 mile finds artists will be there. If that’s not enough to get you out for a Sunday stroll...
There are a number of activities for the kids to get involved in, making this event a real family affair. Dinosaur fossils will be on hand for the kids to touch amongst other interactive events offered by Club Rex Paleopresentations. There is really something for everyone at this market, the dog park committee will also be on hand selling gourmet dog treats.
The Niagara Etsy Artisan team has even sponsored a free craft table with lots of goodies and giveaways (while supplies last). Here you can make a beautiful punch card designed by Etsy’s innovative graphics team!
If that’s not enough to entice you, “In the Orchard” is set to make the public debut of the up-cycled art creations from their Art 2 Youth arts program. This program sees items from the Salvation Army transformed into fantastic works of art. Not only with the ITO be debuting their Art-2-Market program at the show but they will providing free origami flower craft sessions for the young and young at heart.
Finally, First Sunday Stroll will be collecting donations for Pelham Cares   a non-profit, volunteer organization helping residents of Pelham to help each other in times of need. The first fifty visitors making a $2 donation will be given a swag bag full of goodies.
100 mile finds will be there with a groovy gift basket giveaway... Looking forward to seeing you there.
