The Weyburn Arts Council's Gifted Summer Art Market is back for its 7th year, and will run from 10:0 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on August 20th at Jubilee Park. 

"There will be a wide range of arts and crafts, handmade items available, as well as non-profit fun things to do like face paint, and three legged races, and the scavenger hunt. So, fun for the whole family," shared City Curator and Arts Coordinator, Regan Lanning. 

She said last year was the first  year they held 'Gifted' at Jubilee Park, and it's ideal to spread out the vendors all along the walking paths that wind throughout the park. 

"Having those those paved paths really ups the accessibility of our market," she commented. "People of all ages and mobilities can can easily make it out. Last year, we had it there, with our first year being able to hold it there. Previously, for the five years before that, we had been up at Signal Hill Arts Centre, spread out along the road there between the Arts Centre and the Tommy Douglas Performing Arts Centre. So this is a great new option for us."

Lanning pointed out there is limited space inside the Cugnet Centre, where they hold their winter sale. But in the park, they'll have around 25 vendors, plus some other community organizations.

"There's a going to be a barbecue, burgers, and hot dogs, which we believe is going to be done by the Humane Society," she noted. "There will also be candied apples, there, as well as possibly some cotton candy. 

All sorts of things like that as well. The Weyburn Public Library will be there offering crafts with their button-maker, and the Weyburn Oilwomen will be joining us with a little chalk station for the kids to draw at," she explained. 

"Then we also have a wonderful lineup of artists and artisans joining us," Lanning added. "It is a completely handmade art market. We don't take any MLM businesses, or like stuff mass-produced, outside of you know, wherever. Everything at our market is 100 percent handmade by local artists and artisans."
