Have we had enough of winter? I think so. Some of us are starting to think about activities and community events that we look forward to every year. As a member, and board member, of the Innisfil Arts, Culture & Heritage Council, or (the mercifully shorter) IACHC, I didn’t think it was too soon to mention some spring dates where we hope to welcome and meet more Innisfil residents:
Saturday, March 30 – Seedy Saturday
The IACHC will be participating this year in Seedy Saturday at the Lakeshore branch, Innisfil IdeaLab & Library. There will be lots of seedy and crafty exhibitors to kick off the new garden season. Visit the IACHC table to find out more about our projects and enter our draw to win a garden arbour designed and created with help from IdeaLab.
Monday, April 8 – Innisfil Concert Series
IACHC has partnered with IdeaLab & Library to present four musical events throughout the year. The series starts with Ennis Sisters in Concert. All concerts are being held at the Lakeshore branch, Alcona. Tickets are available for individual performances, or for the full series. Complete information is on the IACHC website.
Saturday, May 25 – Planters Festival
Partnered with the Innisfil Garden Club as part of their annual fund-raising plant sale, traditionally held after the Victoria Day weekend at the South Innisfil Arboretum in Guilford. It’s an early morning start with plants, bake sale and barbecue as well as some related exhibitors and the IACHC.
June 1 & 2 – Cookstown Wing Ding
Cookstown Wing Ding is a town-wide weekend yard sale that has grown into a fun family festival with food trucks & beverages, games, park area, music stage and bouncy castle. Never know what you’ll find but always fun.
A highlight is the Creative Challenge, open for all ages. This year’s challenge is to transform an otherwise ‘disposable’ cup into a work of art with a favourite quote, phrase, joke or whatever. Visit Creative Challenge for more information and an entry form. Visitors to Wing Ding vote for Challenge winners.
Plan to reserve the dates you’re interested in. Maybe, all of them?
