Trail Mix 2017

CALL FOR PERFORMERS AND ARTISTS TO TAKE PART IN A DIFFERENT KIND OF TRAIL MIX

Preparations for this year’s Uxbridge Celebration of the Arts are in high gear, with event coordinators promoting participation in this well-loved annual extravaganza. This year, the group has added a new segment called “Trail Mix,” to be held on September 23 starting at noon. Imagine a unique trail walk through Elgin Park, where all genres of the arts will be presented in a glorious outdoor setting. The Trail Mix committee, headed by Amy Peck, is looking for buskers, musicians, dancers, painters, photographers, sculptors and artists in any other genres who would like to perform and exhibit in the show.

“This is an event to celebrate our local talent and trails with a busker-style showcase through the paths of Elgin Park,” Peck says. “It will be a great outing for the entire family and it’s free! Attendants can bring a picnic, stroll through the park, and experience the wealth of talent in our community. An outdoor celebration of the arts!” Anyone interested in performing or displaying their work should send an email to trailmixuxbridge@gmail.com.

Watch for more details to come on the Celebration of the Arts, with events running from September 9 through October 14. Meet Mary Walsh in person, savour the Studio Tour, short film festival, juried art show, children’s art show, concerts, dance, improv and more. Visit CelebrationoftheArts.ca.
