I want to call the Cathedral Village Art Festival Street Fair one of Saskatchewan’s best kept secrets, but how secret can it be when 40,000 to 50,000 people show up every year to hang out, view the creative work of over 300 artisans, plus an assortment of musicians, buskers and food vendors.
The big attraction for me and a lot of others I suspect is the quality and originality of the Artisan’s wares. Unlike most street markets who allow the reselling of manufactured products, the CVAF prohibits this restricting their participants to offer only handmade items made by the artist hosting the spot. Which is especially cool because you can talk with the artisan directly.
With this in mind I was really happy and thankful when I got the opportunity to make this event the first date of shuboy’s traveling medicine show tour. I think it’s a perfect match, as the goal of the tour is the same as the artisans which at the core is to showcase their creations to the public, and to create revenue to live to create more. Win Win in my book.
My venue will be at the on 13thAve and just before Elphinstone St so please come over and say Hi. I got a few tall tales to tell and plenty of music, and of course the Volvolator my favorite cigar box guitar. Just look for the tent and the Marquee, it have shuboy’s traveling medicine show plastered all over it
So come down and have some fun with us it’s a guaranteed good time.
The Street Fair date is Saturday, May 25th, 2019 and goes from 10 AM to 5:00 PM and takes place on 13th Avenue between Albert Street & Elphinstone Street, on the 2100 block of Retallack St on 2114 – 2124 Robinson Street and in the Garnet Street parking lot in the heart of Regina, Saskatchewan.
