Dry Stone Festival 2019 - The Lodge on Amherst Island!
Time & Location
About the Event
Our 2019 theme highlights island landscapes and dry stone walling craft and tradition. As always, the two-day festival is a mix of international guests, Dry Stone Canada members, local supporters, and our walling community. The general public is welcome! Watch master wallers create a bayside seating area, check out the carving workshop under the pines, our curved wave wall workshop, and our historic restoration workshop close to The Lodge and our partner the Neilson Store Museum and Cultural Centre. The festival includes Amherst Island food and craft vendors, heritage and community booths, and a children's/youth waller area! Find some shade at our presentation tent and check slideshows of Canadian and International projects. Visit our Dry Stone Interpretation and Learning Centre for photos, posters, games, and information on dry stone craft and structures worldwide, and tour the walls of Amherst Island!
