Steering wheels and Celtic reels at the Errington Farmers’ Market

The May 25 market will include the classic cars from VI Cruisers and celtic music

A Saturday at the market is always full of great entertainment, but on May 25 the Errington Farmers’ Market is host to two special events that will guarantee good times for market goers of all ages.

In addition to the regular vendors and tasty food, the market area and War Memorial Hall will also be the venue for the 2019 Islands Celtic Festival.

Friday night, they kick off the weekend with a ceilidh dance in the main hall and session in the old fire hall next door, featuring musicians from across the Salish Sea corridor. Saturday offers free workshops, activities, and performances until the evening. The Saturday night concert features some of B.C.’s top Celtic musicians. Sunday morning, they will squeeze in one last session before everyone heads home around noon. This means even more music during your Saturday market experience, and the market stage will feature Celtic performances.

And if that isn’t enough of an extra, the May 25 market is a destination stop for the VI Cruisers classic car outing. In the market field, expect to see a variety of exceptional classic cars parked while the cruisers shop the market. You might even see some cruisin’ themed food at the market café.
