After a two-year hiatus, the Rotary Club of Windsor (1918) could not be more pleased with the successful return of Art in the Park in Windsor which took place over the weekend of June 4 and 5. Celebrating its 42nd year, annual attendance records were shattered with more than 40,000 people participating in the event.
Artists agreed that the event was a huge success for both visitors and exhibitors. Megan Cornwall, owner of Iris and Marnie, said, ‘Tthis was my first year as an exhibitor at Art in the Park and I was absolutely blown away by the outpouring of support from the community.”
The excitement for the return of Art in the Park was apparent with lines that wrapped around the block and full shuttle buses. The free shuttle service eased a lot of congestion around Walkerville and many of the guests who utilized the service praised the bus drivers and the service on social media.
“Just when you think you’ve seen it all at Art in the Park, we keep finding really one-of-a-kind talent to enhance an already great event,” said co-chair, Jennifer Charron. “After a very successful weekend, we’re excited to start planning for Art in the Park 2023!”
Proceeds raised from this year’s event will continue to support the restoration of Willistead Manor as well as local and global community service projects through The Rotary Club of Windsor (1918).
