ABOUT Bazaart
Bazaart is Saskatchewan’s largest outdoor art and craft show & sale, showcasing handmade creations by innovative Canadian artists who excel in their chosen medium.

The 44th annual Bazaart will take place on Saturday, June 17 from 10 AM to 5 PM outside, on the grounds of the MacKenzie Art Gallery, at the corner of Albert Street and 23rd Avenue in Regina, Saskatchewan; admission fee is $5 per person. Each year over 5,000 Bazaart attendees support independent Canadian artists and craftspeople by purchasing unique, stylish and practical alternatives to mass-produced items. All artists are encouraged to promote the unique and original design of their work and to use local and/or environmentally-friendly materials whenever possible.
