Jokes about Oshawa are old and boring. Art popping up mysteriously around the city is not. People in the Oshawa art community already know the artistic talent residing in the community; the love, the discipline, the creativity, the hard work.

This year’s festival is allowing the chance for everyone to experience the same music and art that I know and love – the same talents I take pride in and want to share with the world. It’s also a chance for my greedy senses to experience new things- new art for my eyes to decipher and more music for my body to move to.
There will be 200 artists from all over the Durham Region taking part, that’s a lot of work to admire and share. This will be a week to talk about and a perfect way to end another summer gone.
