Yikes! Where has the time gone. When I send in my application it always seems like a long time to go before Bazaart will happen. We usually find out in late March or early April if we’ve been juried in this year. It still seems like a long time until mid-June. Somehow that time gets shorter every year until BOOM – it’s only a month away! This year is a special one – it’s Bazaart’s 40th Anniversary on Saturday, June 15, 2013 outside the MacKenzie Art Gallery on Albert Street in Regina, SK
What is Bazaart? It’s the largest outdoor arts and crafts show and sale in Saskatchewan. It’s juried, which means that every year a committee chooses the vendors who sell there. You have to be juried into Bazaart EVERY year, even if you’ve previously been juried in. Bazaart is about quality workmanship and unique and interesting items from artists and artisans. There’s music and food creating a wonderful creative atmosphere for shopping. It’s a lot of work for vendors to get there and set up for a one day show but it’s worth it! It`s always great to see fellow artists and artisans and welcome new ones.
This is my 3rd Bazaart. I have return customers who look for me there in Booth #119 - the same booth I`ve had every year . Since Bazaart is my 1st Sale of the year, I often premiere new types of snow dyed items there. Last year it was chiffon scarves. This year – well, I’ll keep that under my hat for now.
Bazaart is a fund raiser for the MacKenzie Art Gallery in Regina SK. You can check out all the details here http://www.mackenzieartgallery-bazaart.ca/ including a map of the booths and information about participating vendors.
