This Weekend in Grand Bend

Written on May 12th, 2016

There is so much going on May 14 & 15 – Art Tour, Sidewalk Sales, Blues Concert, Free Store & Good Eats!

In the interest of full disclosure, I will say that once again, I am shamelessly promoting the new location of my husband’s Gallery/Studio.  Victor Alderson’s Art & Photo Gallery moved to 14 Main Street, Grand Bend, in the sunroom building as of May 1.  (For the past year, he was located on Queens Ave in the ‘Bend.)  As you head down Main Street toward Lake Huron, you will see him just a stone’s throw from the main intersection on the left.

Of course, this is the weekend of the Grand Bend Studio Tour (Also known as Arts, Eats & Beats or The Stars Come Out – I’m not sure why there are so many pseudonyms.) Please come out and support the many talented artists, artisans and crafts people throughout the Grand Bend area.

As part of the busy weekend, Blues Musician extraordinaire John Primer and the Real Deal Blues Band will be live at The Gables, Saturday night, May 14. For tickets, contact Peter Phillips 519-238-6873 or  peterphillips@hay.net .

As well, the businesses along Main Street will be holding Sidewalk Sales on Saturday and Sunday.  Weather permitting, merchandise will be displayed along the street.

A “Free Store” will be held at Huron Shores United Church – that’s right Free!  It’s like a rummage sale, except you can take what you want for free!  Many people make a donation for their selections, but it’s not necessary.  Any donations this year will be going to the United Church’s Wildfire Relief for Fort McMurray and area.  The Free Store will be open Friday, May 13, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, May 14, 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at 25 Main Street in Grand Bend.

Eat out while you’re in Grand Bend – we have so many good restaurants!  Please support one of the sponsors of my website, Pizza Delight.
