The Esplanade at the Trail's IncrEDIBLE Farmer's Market

V1R 4B1

Trail, BC

Directions: Located along the Columbia River, the Esplanade will be converted into a lively Farmer's Market and easily seen from the Library entrance.



Offered in English.

Wheelchair accessible.


Participants can expect several free micro-workshops hosted by local artists and organizations, as well as the opportunity to participate in a collaborative comic jam. Each station will have the option for "take home" workshops if the crowd atmosphere becomes a barrier.

What is a comic jam? It is a free-flowing way to make comics in a group setting. Participants will be given a panel to illustrate and add to the evolving narrative.

Held at the Trail's IncrEdible Farmer's Market, there will also be artisans, farmers, and other vendors to explore.

If coming in person is inconvenient or inaccessible, or if you would like a refresh after the event, all workshops will be made available online.

This event was made possible with local support from: Trails IncrEDIBLE Farmer's Market, VISAC Art Gallery, and Trail & District Public Library.
