This is one of my favourite art shows, and the largest of its kind in Canada. Over 500 artists and artisans fills Nathan Phillips Square for the one weekend each year early in July.

While I was going through the anniehowes.com site looking for my resin pendant supplies, I was tempted by some of the other great looking projects featured on the site.
