Three pairs of ear rings; five necklaces; a leather bag; eight pieces of art; some nice odds and end for the lawn; and countless mementoes for the nook and granny cranny.

That’s what I have personally accumulated over seven ¬†years, perusing the annual art and craft show at Head Lake Park.

You know summer’s on the waning edge when the three day ¬†arts and crafts festival comes to Haliburton.

So just a wee head’s up y’all.

Split open that piggy bank and get ready to drag the kids and the dogs along.

Starting this Friday (July 22) the Rails End Gallery will be hosting the 47th Annual Haliburton Art & Craft Festival. It is one of the best of its kind in Ontario.

Featuring 125 artists and artisans from across the Province, and a few from outside Ontario, this Festival has been a signature event for Haliburton County for 47 years!

Fresh, innovative, eclectic – you will find it in Head Lake Park on the fourth weekend of July every year.

Make the art and craft extravaganza part of your summer experience this year, you’ll be glad you did![/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
