Nanoose Bay Art in the Garden this weekend

More than 50 artisans will have their work on display, for sale at the two-day event

Head down to Nanoose Bay this weekend to check out some art in the garden.

This year vendors and artisans include painters, jewellers, photographers and potters.

Along with the artisans, there is live music and food.

Event organizer Lesley Seselja said the event has become so popular that they had to cut it off at 75 artisans.

The family-run event is going into its seventh year at the 80-year-old property in Nanoose Bay (2525 Northwest Bay Rd.).

Seselja said parking can get pretty jam packed, but there’s street parking along Northwest Bay Road, Claudette Road and Stewart Road. She added there is some reserved handicap parking on the property.

Art in the Garden is July 9 and 10 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is by cash donation with proceeds going to the Nanoose Bay Community Services.
