On July 23, 24 and 25, the Friends of Bon Echo Park are hosting their 15th annual Art Exhibition and Sale, which showcases the original work of 45 juried artists, including painting, photography, stained glass, pottery and more. The theme of the artwork is nature, with artists presenting a unique view of wildlife and the countryside.
This is a fun-filled weekend featuring live, musical entertainment, a BBQ and baked goods table. Children can also participate by creating their own art and attending the Sciensational Sssnakes!! demonstrations at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
The Friends of Bon Echo will be running 45-minute boat tours, which allow visitors to view the aboriginal pictographs (rock paintings) found on Mazinaw Rock. Also available will be ferry trips over to the Cliff Top Trail where visitors can hike to the top of the Rock! Please note there is an additional fee for the boat rides. Don’t forget to stop by The Greystones Gift and Book Shop, housed in a century-old classic cottage, which offers crafts, artwork, clothing, jewellery, CDs and books. The Friends of Bon Echo is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the natural and cultural heritage of Bon Echo Provincial Park.
