Discover treasures at Artisans in the Park
The Lost Villages Museum gives visitors a chance to discover a unique piece of our area’s history. This Saturday, museum visitors will also have a chance to discover a unique treasure or two.
The historical attraction just minutes west of Cornwall will play host to Artisans in the Park on Saturday, July 6th from 11 am to 4 pm. The picturesque museum grounds will play host to a pop up market featuring more than 60 vendors scattered amongst the historic buildings on site.
The vendors will be selling a variety of items including clothing, jewelry, skincare and home décor products, flowers, giftware, knits, toys, woodworks and much more. The Lost Villages Historical Society will be hosting a BBQ on site, making it a perfect outing for the entire family.
“We have amazing artisans in our area and it will give visitors a chance to see all that we have to offer,” said Debbie Poirier-Burns of W3G & Co. (We 3 Girls), the organizers of the event. “There will definitely be something for everyone.”
It marks the second year that Artisans in the Park is held at the Lost Villages Museum. Year one was a huge success and organizers are expecting an even bigger turnout this time around.
“I’m always looking for unique venues to host events in and have always loved the Lost Villages Museum. The grounds there are so beautiful and although it is just outside the city, it does feel much more removed than that,” added Mrs. Poirier-Burns.
The event will be held rain or shine. The Lost Villages Museum is located on Fran Laflamme Drive just off Highway 2 and there is ample parking on site.
