Chilliwack's farming and artisan communities collide

Every year the twin Chilliwack communities of agriculture and culture collide in a single Saturday: Art on the Farm, an artsy celebration of Chilliwack’s farming and artisan communities.

Now in its 10th year, Art on the Farm offers a wide variety of performances and goods on display among orchard trees and farmland in the heart of Columbia Valley.

With just a few weeks remaining before the big day on Aug. 16, organizers are making one last call for musicians, artists and vendors.

Do you pluck a banjo in your spare moments? Do you own a dairy and produce your own cheese? Do you twist wire into jewelry, make soap, or whittle? Do you own a taco truck or make the best fresh bannock in the Valley? Perhaps you do henna designs or face-painting—whatever it is, Art on the Farm has a spot for it in their annual celebration of all things artsy in the Valley.


• More information about booking a spot as a vendor can be found at artonthefarmbc.wordpress.com, and any interested musicians or performers can email info@artonthefarm.ca for more information.
