The Shelburne Whirligig & Weathervane Festival presents the 2nd annual ArtGigs Show and Auction, taking place September 15 & 16 at the Festival on the Historic Shelburne Waterfront.

ArtGigs created by artists from throughout Nova Scotia - with a theme this year of "Sea Monsters". The 2018 sponsors include Boxing Rock Brewing Co. and Shelburne County Arts Council.

The Festival is in its 19th year and sees 500-1000 visitors each year.

During the Festival, the ArtGigs will be sold via a silent auction - with bidding at the Festival and online at Facebook.   ALL PROCEEDS WILL GO DIRECTLY TO THE ARTISTS

The proceeds from the auction for this special item will go toward the "ArtGigs Fund" for next year's 20th Anniversary Whirligig Festival event.
