Artists in the Park A community arts event the same weekend as Bassin' for Bucks.
2021 Artists in the Park Route
Last fall, after the cancellation of August long weekend activities in Sioux Narrows due to COVID-19, local innovators presented a safe alternative for gathering. Artists in the Park established its place on the weekend of Bassin' for Bucks. This popular arts event was an uplifting and welcome opportunity for artists and art lovers to enjoy art, conversation, exercise and the natural beauty of Sioux Narrows Provincial Park. After fishermen headed out on the lake to enjoy the passion and challenge of catching the top weight of the day, families headed to the park to converse with local artisans, stroll the trails and purchase original creations that represent our Lake of the Woods community.
In September 2021, the Township of Sioux Narrows-Nestor Falls will welcome visitors to the Sioux Narrows Provincial Park for another family oriented experience. Join us in September to connect with Northern Ontario nature, healthy lifestyles and the appreciation for handmade local art. Admission to the art sale is by donation.
