  It may only be the 2nd annual, but following the inaugural 2014 Spring Showcase & FEASTival, the event has taken a dramatic growth spurt for 2015. More than seventy-seven exhibitors will be showcasing their products and services in the Drill Hall and Arena One on April 11th and 12th, 2015.  

    The success of the 2014 Showcase that attracted 50+ vendors and more than 1100 people and the overwhelming positive comments received from them were the motivating forces to make the 2015 event even bigger and better. This year’s event is definitely a step up.

    FEASTival – If you were there last year, you will remember the aroma of the Drill Hall. With some of the City’s best food and drinks chefs gathered at Spring Showcase, FEASTival will entice you to try a little of everything. Tickets are $1 each with samples requiring 1-4 tickets. Local restaurants featured in FEASTival will be The Glens, The Castle, Barneys, Cruisers Cafe, Meba Chinese Restaurant, Angelos Pizza, Co-op, How Sweet It Is &  the Terracotta Café.

    New for this year, attendees can help colour a 7.5 ft. long and 2 ft. high ‘Wetaskiwin Welcomes You’ monster mural that will be framed and hung at the Visitor Information Centre located at the Chamber Office.  The Monster Mural will showcase the Water Tower, City Hall, Heritage Museum, the Chamber & Visitor Information Centre, the RCMP and much more.  

    Some of the other attractions people can take in will include a Friday night Movie ‘Book of Life’, complete with free popcorn and an ‘Extravaganza’ show on April 12th featuring live music, a dance and a fashion show for a low admission price.
