Cathedral Village Arts Festival 25th Gathers Huge Turn Out
By Anthony J. Mountjoy | Sat, 25 Jun 2016 08:00:00 EST
The arts movement is alive and well in Saskatchewan as thousands of people brave cloudy skies to celebrate 25 years of the Regina Cathedral Arts Festival. There are dozens of businesses throughout the downtown Regina area, but there is a special whimsical magic to the Cathedral area. Clothes shops, oddities, ice-cream and classy diners and bars. It's the low key, relaxed atmosphere that makes this area so awesome.
When the weather holds as it did this year, the street performers work extra hard for your money and your smiles. If you don't like a family singing together, or a little girl playing a fiddle, you're a heartless monster. Bring some loonies, toonies, AND bills. These people have brought some amazing stuff for our entertainment. Bring even more money next year, this is an annual event!
Fair warning, there are men wearing skirts and women who look like men. Best to keep an open mind along with your wallet. Notably more producing vendors this year, with painters, dancers, woodworkers, musicians, honey farmers, and several literary agents and publishers. The crowd is massive and peaceful. Thanks to the warm weather and cloudy sky our local ginger population was able to take part for a change along with the traditional local policy advocates.
It wouldn't be a public event if the political animals didn't roll in for some pandering. At least this year we got flyers and they hired cuter girls. Also an unfortunate millennial wore a top knot and got mistaken for a fired extra from Game Of Thrones.
