Wow! Why wouldn'y you?


We, like you, think strengthening community is important. We think the work being done here by farmers, artists, food service providers, entrepreneurs and volunteers is great work. We believe a platform is important and that gathering everyone in one space makes a place special. Our organisation, now in its 7th year, is fueled by our community - sponsorships, provincial funding, donations and volunteerism. We are 90% volunteer run and we couldn’t do that without you.
