The Enderby and District Arts Council is putting out a call to local artisans and craftspeople that there is still time to register for the annual outdoor artisan market.

The market is the main attraction at the Enderby Arts Festival, which takes place July 27 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“This year the market will be right in the centre of the action on Cliff Avenue and Belvedere Street as it has outgrown the Maud Street parking lot,” said Neil Fidler, chairperson of the Enderby Arts Festival committee.

A free family friendly event, the festival has been  increasing in attendance every year.

“Last year’s market was oversubscribed and vendors were turned away,” said Fidler.

In addition to the market, this year’s festival includes performances by Shakewood Annie, Transplant, street entertainment with clowns, buskers, face painting, and much more.

“We are very excited to be having a partnership with Splatsin Tsm7aksaltn (Splatsin Teaching Centre) who will be presenting A Taste of Culture in Belvidere Park,” said Fidler.

Those with handcrafted items for sale who wish to participate in the market can contact Maureen Robertson at 250-838-7816 or email enderbyartsfestival@shaw.ca.

A $15 registration fee will be collected on the day of the market.
