The community of Merrickville-Wolford is delighted to host the 3rd Merrickville Festival of the Arts on July 29-30, 2023 at the beautiful Blockhouse Park on the banks of the Rideau River adjacent to the historic Rideau Canal locks. This is a collaborative effort involving The Merrickville Organization for Culture and the Arts (MOCA), the Merrickville Arts Guild (MAG) and Theatre Night in Merrickville (TNIM). This year, we have added a number of exciting new musical performances by local and area musicians. Of special note will be an evening concert on the 29th from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM by Arbour Season. In addition to viewing the beautiful art produced by 30 MAG artists, you will also be able to hear thought-provoking poetry by the Merrickville Rogue Poets and TNIM’s delightful one-act play, “The Green Thumb Gang”.
Merrickville-Wolford has a well-deserved reputation for being a community that supports and appreciates the arts in its many forms. We will be putting our best foot forward to welcome you to the 3rd Merrickville Festival of the Arts. Admission is free to all!
