The 13th Annual Sarnia Lambton Artwalk is underway and set to take place this year June 6th and 7th 2015 in downtown Sarnia. This Arts and Cultural festival brings out over 30,000 attendees, hosts over 200 street vendors and offers several musical entertainers and street performers over the course of the weekend.
We would like to start off by showing our gratitude to TD BANK for continuing to sponsor the Multicultural Village each year. They will be joining us again this year with their $7,000 donation to the festival. As Artwalk is a not for profit it is imperative to the festival to partner with members of the community. TD has shown tremendous support over the years and we look forward to working with them, in partnership with the Sarnia- Lambton Local Immigration Partnership (LIP) to expand the Multicultural Village. This year we will continue to bring awareness to different cultural groups by showcasing our community’s growing diversity.
“Celebrating diversity at events such as Artwalk is a great way to increase our understanding of the cultural groups that exist in our community,” says Jeneane Fast, Social Researcher for the Sarnia-Lambton LIP. “We are excited to once again partner with Artwalk and TD Bank to make the TD Multicultural Village bigger and better for 2015.”
New to this year is our theme! We are excited to be using the new community brand “Discoveries That Matter”. There is a lot to discover at the festival from the arts vendors that take to our streets of downtown, to the TD Multicultural Village, our Eco-Village and interactive Children’s Village.
George Mallay, General Manager of the Sarnia-Lambton Economic Partnership quotes “We are thrilled that Artwalk is adopting the new “Discoveries That Matter” community brand as their theme for 2015. This major arts festival brings thousands of people into the heart of Sarnia’s historical and cultural district, and we look forward to these visitors discovering the wonderful artists, artisans, musicians, and more that are part of the excitement of Artwalk.”
The Economic Partnership is one of 13 Lambton organizations that have the drivers behind the community brand. Registration is set to open online for vendors on Monday, February 23rd at www.sarniaartwalk.com.
