Art and all the ribs you can handle!

Posted by Derek Mann on 2018/07/06

This weekend will be a good one! 

I'm kicking Saturday off at the Newcastle Art Show! It's happening at the Newcastle Memorial Arena on both Saturday and Sunday from 10:00AM-4:00PM. Check out some wicked works of art from over 60 local artists! Admission is free but with a donation at the door you'll be entered to win a door prize!

Next I'll be off to the Canadian Corps Association in Oshawa where Hearth Place is hosting their Dart tournament! Arrive early to register and join in on the fun to be had and prizes to be won! Registration opens at 11:00AM and games start at 1:00PM! 

In the afternoon you can find me at the Abilities Centre in Whitby where they are having their first ever Fun Fair! From 11:00AM-3:00PM you can enjoy a fun filled day of activities including a bouncy castle, face painting, sweet treats and more!

I started my day off at an art show so it only makes sense that I also finish my day at another! The Gallery 67 Summer Art Market is having their Opening Day Gala! Check them out at 67 Simcoe Street North from Tuesday-Saturday all summer long from 10:00AM-4:00PM

Sunday will begin at the beautiful Rouge Park at the Glen Rouge Campground entrance where you can check out the guided trail hikes that are always going on! Specifically on Sunday at 2:00PM you're invited to unplug and enjoy a silent walk in the park! There's always a hike for everyone to participate in! Go to to see a list of the ones you can get involved in! 

Next I'll be heading over to Uxbridge for Family Kite Day! We're hoping it's a nice windy day for your kites to lift off at Uxbridge Historical Centre. Bring some food to enjoy a picnic in the grass and check out the other activities they have to offer. There will even be some delicious ice cream for sale! 

Following up, I'll be at Whitby Rib Fest on Sunday afternoon devouring some of the mouth-watering ribs they have! Sunday is the last day for it but it's running all day on Friday and Saturday too so there's plenty of time for you to check out the midway, shop in the marketplace and welcome a cold beverage on a hot day!

Lastly find me wrapping up my weekend with a Winsticker Drive Through somewhere in Whitby where I can get you signed up to be a winner on the next Winsticker Wednesday! 

Have a great weekend and I hope to see you out there! Remember if there's an event you think I should know about send me an email at:
