Summerville Art Festival 2018
Saturday, August 25th from 12pm to 5pm
Join us for a celebration of Art and Community
The community of Summerville on the Kingston Peninsula, across the Kennebecasis River from Saint John, is one of New Brunswick’s best kept secrets. Beautiful, unspoiled and rich with tidal estuary wildlife, Summerville also has an artistic heritage few communities of its size can claim. A surprisingly large number of prominent artists have lived and worked there and many still call it home.
The people of Summerville, a community of just a few hundred, will invite Canadians from across the country to share in the festival. Summerville residents will open their homes to welcome artists who’ll display their works in pop-up galleries along a one-mile stretch of New Brunswick’s scenic Route 845. Visitors will arrive on foot, on bike, by boat, or by car, as we celebrate the beauty of New Brunswick, the warmth of its people, and the art and artists of the Kingston Peninsula and surrounding area.
Starting at the 150-year-old Summerville United Church, guests will be able to stroll along a one-mile stretch of Route 845 overlooking the beautiful Kennebecasis River, enjoying a number of pop-up art galleries. We’re expecting to have 25 local artists display their work. There will also be a BBQ, an Afternoon Tea and a lemonade stand along the route…
