A bittersweet final show for Art Farm.

Art Farm has been running for five years, and initially started as a way to help local artists get their work out, and support local charities.

Over the years Art Farm grew until it had become a huge attraction in Weyburn.

"It's a fun event. I like that it brings everybody together. there's a lot of different artists here, and you don't get to see all of this all together all at once throughout the year," said Elisa Fawcett who was enjoying the displays.

And now, after five years of action, Art Farm is shutting down.

"At first you feel some sadness, because, you know, you don't want to let something like this go," said Rickee Lee Webster, one of the founders of Art Farm. "It's kind of good to walk away from something when it's successful and you get to have pride in it still."

This year's show boasted new artists, wagon rides, and great new music from local artists. It was a creative, fun end to its legacy and a suiting finish for Art Farm.
