Annual Art In The Park Is Just Around The Corner

Vermilion’s eagerly awaited annual Art in the Park event is just around the corner, promising a day of artistic exploration and community engagement. Hosted by The Goodlife Institute and predominantly sponsored by Inter Pipeline, the event is set to take place on September 9 at the Vermilion Heritage Park, located at 5320-50th Avenue, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

This year’s event boasts an outdoor artisan market with over 20 vendors showcasing a diverse range of creations available for browsing and purchase. From intricate sculptures to handcrafted jewelry, to everything in between attendees can expect an array of unique pieces that celebrate creativity.

In addition to the vendor market, attendees will be treated to a complimentary lunch, including cinnamon buns which is also courtesy of Inter Pipeline. The event’s atmosphere will be further enhanced by live musical entertainment courtesy of funding from the Alberta Culture Days grant.

For those interested in a hands-on experience, artist Monica To will be leading two art creation classes. The morning session, titled Morning Masterpieces, will run from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., while the afternoon session, ‘Coffee and Canvases’, will take place from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. These classes, available for a fee of $35 plus GST, will provide all necessary art supplies and instruction. Pre-registration is required for participation.

However, Art in the Park isn’t just about art and entertainment. The event will also feature the Mobile Prostate Cancer Centre, The Man Van, courtesy of Inter Pipeline. This initiative will offer men the opportunity to undergo a simple PSA blood test, emphasizing the importance of proactive health monitoring.

As the date approaches, excitement grows for Art in the Park. With its blend of artisanal vendors, artistic classes, and community well-being initiatives, the event exemplifies Vermilion’s spirit of creativity and unity.

“Make sure to mark September 9 on your calendars for a day that celebrates both the arts and the community,” said The Goodlife Institutes’s, Paige Jaremco.
