Joybilee Farms Linen Festival @ Joybilee Farms
Aug 11 – Aug 12 all-day

The 2012 Linen Festival takes place on Saturday August 11th from 10 am to 5pm at Joybilee Farm.

 

This is the only Linen Festival in English Speaking North America.  While it isn’t a huge event, it is a unique event that celebrates organic agriculture, homesteading, sustainable clothing, and our regional fibershed.  When we started the Linen Festival 6 years ago, we hoped it would grow into an event that attracted those who like to make things with their own hands, and in tune with organic, self-reliance, and with respect for ourselves and the environment.   We hoped it would be a catalyst for beautiful, fashion, that is healthy, and hard wearing — a symbol of enduring fashion — the antithesis of our throw-away, just-in-time consumer culture.

GARNET ROGERS @ Gallery 2 Art & Heritage Centre
Sep 15 @ 2:30 am – 5:00 am

Garnet RogersFolk Icon Garnet Rogers sings extraordinary songs about people who are not obvious heroes and of the small victories of the everyday. As memorable as his songs, his over-the-top humor and lightning-quick wit moves his audience from tears to laughter and back again.
Daniel Champagne will be opening the show for Garnet. This guitar-slapping, body percussion, soulful singing makes this young man one to watch.
Stop by Gallery 2 or call 250-442-2211 for more details.
