For young singers like Mackenzie Faulkner the chance to sing in front of a live audience at events like Grangestock, is a great opportunity.

The 12-year-old Allan A. Martin student was one of several young performers singing today during the third annual Grangestock.

The free Heritage Mississauga event on the grounds of the the historic Robinson-Adamson House, “the Grange”, combined arts and music for a community festival attended by a few hundred people.

Mackenzie sang a Bruno Mars song and audience members appreciated his young talent.

"I enjoyed it. It’s a good chance for me to sing live," he said, admitting he was a little nervous. "My knees were shaking the whole time I was up there."

Afterward, crowds enjoyed the old time rock and blues of the Jerry Stiff Band as well as multimedia artists who were demonstrating and selling their works in the vendors village.

Children played on a bouncy castle, made arts and crafts and had their faces painted.

Grangestock chairman and vice president of Heritage Mississauga Greg Carraro said the day is all about giving back to the community.

"Originally, the first Grangestock came together as a way to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Woodstock," he said. "We hold events like these to entertain the city and to educate and let people know what programs we offer."

This year, Grangestock teamed up with Sir John’s Homestead Ratepayers’ Association, the neighbouring ratepayers’ group, explained Heritage Mississauga executive director Jayme Gaspar.

This allowed the association to take part in the community event and hold its annual barbecue at the same time.

All proceeds from refreshment sales and silent auction goes to support the Research, Education and Resource Centre of Heritage Mississauga.

“Capturing Mississauga’s Heritage”
175th Anniversary of the Rebellion of 1837

Add Text (alt for images, text for links)We are inviting artists and photographers to walk in the footsteps of history and to retrace and capture an image from the route of William Lyon Mackenzie’s escape following the failed Rebellion of 1837, 175 years ago in 2012! Mackenzie’s flight from authorities took him through historic Mississauga in late December of 1837, following the rebel uprising at Montgomery’s tavern. Mackenzie’s story, and the Rebellion of 1837, has become a famed part of Canada’s history.

We are asking submitting artists to capture a scene along the route that was taken by Mackenzie through Mississauga – a modern scene or streetscape, nature, a historic house or setting, anything that might strike your fancy and in any format that you wish. Prizes will be awarded to the winning entries, and all entries will be part of the ALFEW show “Celebrating Mississauga’s Heritage 2: The 175th Anniversary of the Rebellion of 1837”, which runs from June 19th, 2012 to August 24th, 2012. For more information on the contest, Mackenzie’s historic route of travel, sites along the route, or information about the Rebellion of 1837, please contact Heritage Mississauga.

Criteria:

  • To enter the contest, artists must be members of Heritage Mississauga. There is no contest entry fee.
  • All types of media accepted (pencil drawing; pen and ink drawing; painting; photography; carving; sculpture; collage; weaving; macrame; embroidery, etc)
  • All submissions must connect to the route of Mackenzie’s flight through historic Mississauga (map on reverse).
  • Completed artwork must be submitted at The Grange no later than 4pm on Friday, June 8th, 2012
  • Artwork to be hung must be a minimum 15 x18 and no larger than 21 x 28.5 (framed).
  • Stand alone artwork such as sculptures cannot be larger than 4’x3’ and must have a secure stand upon which they can be displayed
  • All submissions must be framed and wired for hanging (please contact ALFEW for the appropriate types of frames) www.alfew.com
