This past saturday – Oct 4th, Jackson Creek Press was to be found taking part in our third ArtsWeek Streetfest. The weather forecast, leading up to the day was mediocre at best. On the day it was cool and windy, but the rain that was called for never really materialized. Thankfully.
This year, ArtsWeek coincided with other city wide activities like Doors Open Peterborough and the traditional Head of the Trent rowing regatta. Folks were plentiful as they filled Hunter Street for kids activities, art installations, music and our Focus Fair craft show and sale.
We had about 14 vendors out for the day, and from the folks i spoke to, sales were strong. It was a good day for us, and with the exception of trying to keep my tent from flying away in the periodic gusts of morning wind, I had a great time speaking to lots of new faces.
Next stop for us is in two weeks time – October 18th. Jackson Creek Press will be showing and selling at Art In The Park – a Peterborough Arts Umbrella event at Millenium Park here in downtown Peterborough. We invite you to come by and say hello.
