The Pinch Penny Fair is an established Island tradition of spring hosted by the Friends of Confederation Centre. The annual fundraising event helps support the Art-to-the-School Program, the Festive Wreath Contest/Exhibition, the Confederation Centre Youth Choir, children’s art activities, and special projects for the Centre.
The Pinch Penny Fair is more than a giant flea market — shoppers can explore the silent auction, plant tables, and baked goods, as well as locally made arts and crafts. The Kids Zone will feature games, face painting, balloon twisting, prizes, carnival treats, and The Music Man, Michael Pendergast, will be performing for kids of all ages at 10:30 am and 11:30 am in this area. There will also be live entertainment from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. featuring Judy MacLean Dancers and Angelina MacKinnon.
The 48th annual Pinch Penny Fair is taking place this Saturday, April 23 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Confederation Centre of the Arts.
Donations are being accepted until April 21 at the Centre’s Richmond Street entrance. Admission is $2 and children 12 and under are free. For additional information call 902-628-6141 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
