Over 35 artists will be showcasing their work at ArtFest 2012 on Saturday, August 11th as part of Sun Life Cornwall Waterfest.

Building on a successful first year in 2011, the second edition of ArtFest promises to big even bigger and better. This year’s event will host over 30 artists from Cornwall and S, D & G as well as the Ottawa and Montreal areas.

In addition to the showcase of artists, local musicians Sara Murphy and Chuck Leclair have stepped in to bring the event to the next level by assembling a cast of incredible musical acts to busk in the art yard. The buskers will donate half of their proceeds to the Heart & Stroke Foundation.

ArtFest will be held on Saturday, August 11th from 9 am to 4 pm at the Kinsmen Soccer Fields on Second Street West in Riverdale.

The art event is part of Sun Life Cornwall Waterfest, which is taking place August 10th and 11th at the historic old Cornwall Canal.

In addition to ArtFest and the popular Dragon Boat Races, this year's event will feature an exciting Water Run, swimming races, a Strongman Competition, a Dragon Egg Drop and much more!

It’s all for a great cause! Funds raised from WaterFest go to the local office of the Heart & Stroke Foundation to further work on heart and stroke research, health promotion and education.
