Cool days, frosty nights, falling leaves — all signs that fall has arrived. And that means Thanksgiving is almost here.
Are you looking for an enjoyable way to spend part of the Thanksgiving weekend? If so, perhaps you’d like to take in the special Thanksgiving Market at Bergen. Most of the regular summer vendors will be there along with some new faces.
The Bergen Farmers’ Market is set in picturesque rural Alberta. It has a well-earned reputation for the quality of its vendors and its warm, welcoming atmosphere. The coffee pot is always on (and the coffee is free) — and of course you can buy tasty pastries to enjoy with your cuppa.
So mark your calendar — Saturday October 12 from 10 to 1 pm — and join us.
I’ll have my new fall designs for sale — here’s a sample. 😉
You’ll find a map here. (Please note — although this link says the market runs until 4, it wraps up at 1.)
September is a great month for artists. Alberta Arts Day, September 30, began as a one-day celebration in 2008 to recognize the contribution artists make to life in this province. That year 100 events in 30 communities marked the celebration.
This special occasion — a 3-day party now known as Alberta Culture Days — has blossomed since then. Last year more than 1200 events over 3 days happened across the province.
Airdrie does even more to mark the importance of the arts. ARTember runs from September 13th to the 29th. The big kickoff happens Friday September 13 with a special art show and sale.
I’ll be at the show both days with my jewelry. Please drop by and say hello. 😉
